In one sense the update process is very quick, git --pull followed by
make.  We could set up a cron job to do that; the downside is that the
above will leave the website in a broken state if someone screws
something up.  There aren't (currently) enough changes to the website to
warrant writing something that would handle the second case.

(In this case, you probably should have followed the documented review
policy for Mercury which requires that *all* web site changes be posted
for review; that way, (1) I would have been aware of it and (2) the
mistakes in your commit would have been caught before you pushed.)
