Subject Re: Refreshing the site

Unfortunately, it seems that all of the pages that embed dynamic  
content (like RSS feeds) need to be "touched" to force an update to  
the content.

The cumbersome process is as follows:

1. Go to 
2. Log in and edit the page. To make the process even more annoying,  
Confluence is clever enough to ignore trivial whitespace changes  
(e.g., adding a newline at the very end of the text). However, you  
can add a newline before one of the "h2" sections, and that will  
trigger the re-export process.
3. Observe that the exported page at 
mailing-lists.html now contains the most recent mailing list posts
4. Wait a couple hours, and then observe that the official mirror of  
the confluence export at  
now contains the most recent posts.

I don't know how other projects are handling this. I would think that  
the best way to solve this would be to automatically re-export all of  
the pages each night, but that would require some infra work. Perhaps  
the ASF infra people might have suggestions for making this process a  
little more automatic.

PS. There is actually another way to re-export *all* the pages on the  
site, ensuring that all their embedded content is updated, but you  
need confluence administrator access, which I don't think most people  
have. You can do it going to 
autoexport/configuration.action , selecting "OpenJPA" in the long  
"Rebuild exported spaces" list, then clicking "Export space(s)".
