when building static site, copy skin files only if they have been modified since the last static
site build
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: FOR-1175
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FOR-1175
             Project: Forrest
          Issue Type: Improvement
          Components: Launch 'forrest'
    Affects Versions: 0.9-dev
            Reporter: Brolin Empey
            Priority: Minor


Years ago, I asked about this issue on the user mailing list:

<http://article.gmane.org/gmane.text.xml.forrest.user/4391/match=skin+directory+copied+unconditionally+static+site+build>

AFAIK, nothing has changed since then.  I want to report the issue here so it does not get
forgotten.

Anyway:

When I rebuild my static site, the "skin" directory seems to be copied unconditionally to
the build/site/ directory.  This means that, because the local files have been rewritten and
consequently have newer modification times than the remote files, skin/ is uploaded each time
I use lftp's reverse mirror function to publish changes to my public Web site, even if nothing
in the skin has changed.

The Ant target that copies the non-generated content to build/site/ should be changed to copy
files (including skin files) only if the source file has changed.  Maybe rsync could be used
to copy non-generated content.

If no one fixes this issue, I may use oDesk to hire someone to fix the issue.  I have already
had success with using oDesk to hire Michal Sciubidlo to fix Mozilla.org bug 269728.  I have
hired Michal again to fix Mozilla.org bug 178506.
