Ok, so these three are all pushed using scp, sftp, or rsync+ssh, right?
That seems pretty straightforward, I will probably end up scripting
something to do that for me in one step.

Are any packages that would be going through this process *not* in this

Ok, how about we add a comment on the release tracker itself before we
start to work on a particular package?

Ok, no problem.

So updating news.html for now means

1. scp ${username},address@hidden:htdocs/news.html .
2. edit news.html
3. scp news.html ${username},address@hidden:htdocs/news.html

and then at some point in the future, periodically copy it into
project-web and hg commit / push?

Is there a reason to avoid commits to the project-web package?
