Ok, well the next time you can try to update the XML, perhaps you have
write access already, otherwise keep posting on the ml. In the case of
Thunar/Exo/Terminal, they have implied distcheck flags to build the
xml and html files, which means final tarball have always up to date
xml + html files. Other projects don't work like that. Its worth to
always update them for users installing from svn.
