My thoughts:

1) There's not a requirement, in my mind, for holding changes in the doc trees
for a long amount of time; meaning, I would be comfortable if the docs were
pointed at a reflection of the CVS tree.  

2) Updates every 6-hours are alright, but ideally there's a "button" one could
push when they've committed a change which pushes a new reflection out.

3) We should avoid having any CVS gunk in the live site.
