Hi Stan - the OBO files in cvs are updated whenever we edit them (the
files on the ftp site take about an hour extra to update) - this can be
several times a day, or much less often depending on what we're doing. The
old flat files are just automatically generated from the OBO files once a
day (if there have been any changes), so I'm not sure what you were seeing
- we only switched over to generating the OBO files from the OFF about 3
months ago, it used to be the other way around, so maybe you were seeing the
The database is currently only generated once a month (it takes a while
to compile it), but this will hopefully become more frequent soon.
We can try and make this a bit clearer on the website, although I'm not
sure that's where people are looking...
