The problem is that we don't check and remove files for packages
that have disappeared. The page generation script has been modified
to regenerate the pages from scratch once a week.
The reason it is done only once a week is not because they take
very long to generate, but to minimize the time that pages are
unavailable. A better way would be to make the pages in a tmp
dir and mv the new directory into place when done.
I'll discuss this with Joy before implementing it.
