Docs and skins should be updated now.

For the docs there is no posthook and no cron job, and probably (I
haven't checked it yet) the package required to build the docs are not
installed too.

For the skins it seems to be a permission problem, the posthook is
there and is correct.

I think there are some serious permission problems on the new server; I
used to be able to write to the various public directories (like skins
and releases) as a user on the old mphq*, now I have to do it as root.
This is probably also why the commit scripts are failing.

I will try to have a look at it in the next days, but I know that there
will be another server move in the near future.

Sorry for the problems this is causing; now I have everything prepared
to do it, so just ping me when you need to update something.
