Yes. That's also the way to accomplish a standard FAQ update, of
course. If you want it to be reposted sooner than its usually
scheduled time, send the faq-server a FORCE command, which will cause
it to post the files as soon as possible (usually that night), then
reschecule the next posting based on the assigned interval.
