What it does is:

gerard:~$ cat /usr/bin/update-alfs-site 

export CVSROOT=:pserver:anon at

[ ! -d $TMP_DIR ] && mkdir -p $TMP_DIR
cvs export -D now www/alfs
rm -r *
cp -a $TMP_DIR/www/alfs/* .
rm -r $TMP_DIR

it's not the most optimal thing to do, but it was derived from the
update-lfs-site script which needs to backup a few directories like the
'view' and 'faq' directories before the website itself can be updated (the
'view' and 'faq' directory aren't in CVS, they are generated from cvs code
by other scripts)
