To publish new XEPs the Editors simply have to commit the new versions, and then drop me (or others on iteam) a mail asking for the container to be redeployed. I believe some of the Editor scripts that send email might need adjusting, but from an iteam-deploying-XEPs-to-the-website point of view everything of which I’m aware is working (I have tested deploying stuff and it seems ok - the only current wibble is that the website itself doesn’t correctly list XEP versions on the index; I’m hoping to look at this soon).

It does, as it has always done.

I don’t see any reason to do this, we’re able to publish XEP updates just fine.
