All files except docs, since there are dynamic parts like survey and 
particularly gborg stats on all pages. But there are not very many pages here.

As for the docs, there is version without user comments which will not need to 
be mirrored unless the design changes or the docs for the newer version replace 
the older docs. The version with user comments will need to be mirrored every 
time, obviously. Though we may consider removing comment form from docs for the 
older versions and ease this requirement.

Of course one can add Last-Modified header and 304 response to the pages, but 
there still will be a request to make.

If you mean whether anyone will be able to access the script via web then the 
answer is "no", it will be run from console. If the question is different then I 
don't get it.
