I am not clear what is what would be called the maintainable source in the case of the ooo-site.

It is useful to know that some of the pages are generated automatically as byproducts of other
processes (such as an IDL processor/generator) and are not the maintainable source.

I wonder if there are places in the ooo-site publication staging- and tool-chain where one
also must be careful not to patch downstream from the preferred source.

Knowing there are other steps needed beyond committing working-copy changes to the ooo-site
SVN is more mystery meat.  The only way I have seen for triggering publishing of the site
is on the CMS browser interface.  I have no idea if that is the place for performing the missing

I hope you can give me a hint what I am missing...

I checked out 
some time ago and made some changes for example in the index.html (e.g. 
removed the project lead names)

I checked the content locally and check in the index.html. But when I 
browse the API site my changes are not yet visible there.

Which step is missing?
