Actually, I'll rerun the script when making it live, rather than merging 
cypress into comm-central (cypress will likely end up with lots of heads).

It should be able to be automatic, since I don't foresee any merge 
conflicts happening. The other questions are effectively independent 
management questions that can be answered at greater leisure. I've 
personally generally thought that merging m-c every day or every m-c 
push (waiting ~15min to coalesce multiple tree pushes) (the latter 
happening about every 6-24h) seemed about right.
