I can do it (and keep up with the changes) for now.

But in the long run this probably should be automated. I only see the
password barrier:

scp pep-*.txt nowonder@shell.sourceforge.net:/home/groups/python/htdocs/peps
will make me enter my password/passphrase.

How would one go about doing something like that?

One "solution" I can think of is to checkout a copy of nondist/peps from
the CVS to htdocs/peps. Then the peps could be held up to date by running
cvs up in that directory once a day (or 4 times a day).
But this would require some action of SF to add it to their cron,
wouldn't it?!
