Yes, you're right!  What can we do about that?  Who triggers an
update / how can we do this more regularily?  I have some vague
memories that Benjamin was pushing for this a year or two ago as
well.

Doesn't have to be daily, but could we do this whenever someone
regenerates libstdc++/doc/html?

Yes, Benjamin has shell access so can do it.

Unless we set up some way to do it remotely or automatically, only
someone with shell access can do it, and the overseers quite
reasonably don't want to give out shell access to non-essential
people.
