Thanks. I suppose they have to go into the repo, rather than be
added through the Django admin:


While this is a common approach, it is also somewhat cumbersome
when adding new content with embedded images.

Ok, I found that entry in the admin. Apparently changes to the
sitetree take a longer while to actually make it through to
the site. Looks like there's some heavy caching going on.

There is indeed a lot of generating going on on the site. The
templates for those generated pages can be found in the repo
as well:


I guess to be fully productive in maintaining the site, we'll
need to give more people access to the repo.
