Sorry, I wasn't being intentionally vague, but I don't know precisely 
how you push documentation updates.

I guess you will need to do a 'cvs add *.html'

Ultimately, I think it would be a good idea if cygwin-doc was generated 
by the same process which builds the cygwin(|-devel|-debuginfo) packages.

But we are some way from there yet.

My thought was that the simplest way to do the transition is to exclude 
all the files currently owned by cygwin-doc until then, but maybe you 
have a different idea.
