No you're wrong. It something assimilar to $(wildcard
security/$(CUR_YEAR)/*.wml) in the target rule which causes a rebuild if
a new DSA is added and if an existing one is changed ...

I didn't know of such a cronjob, are you sure? I suggested already in
the past to do a global "make clean" (or better rm -rf ...) followed by
a "make publish" to workaround Makefile issues, but IIRC Joey denied
this because it would be too time consuming.
