Craig-

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 http://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/openjpa/Mailing% 
20Lists
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 http://cwiki.apache.org/openjpa/ 
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 http://openjpa.apache.org/mailing-lists.html  
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 http://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/admin/ 
autoexport/configuration.action , selecting "OpenJPA" in the long  
"Rebuild exported spaces" list, then clicking "Export space(s)".
