I'm okay with doing, I was just hoping that there would be a better way of doing
know, so that I don't miss a file, or forget to copy over, or whatever other little mistake
humans can make. 

I just copy over everything, e.g. on UNIX:
cp -Rf build/site/* ../../forrest-site
In that way i don't miss any new or updated files.
Actually before i do the copy, i check the differences
diff -rq build/site ./../forrest-site
which also reveals any files that should be deleted from
the published site.
