[Go-database] Re: error when loading GO process into GO database

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 
files pre-switchover?

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...
