[opencms-dev] Static Export for DownloadGallery

Dear Mark

For some resource type, static export is on by default. For example, 
html stuff should be configured to be exported by default. This can be 
fixed by either changing your opencms-import-export.xml and setting the 
default export setting for your resources differently or by setting the 
"export" property to "false" on the folders that contain your pages, 
images and whatever else gets exported without you wanting to.

On the other hand, for the same reason, you need to enable exporting the 
kind of resources that you want to export. There, it's probably most 
convenient to set the "export" property of  your download gallery 
folder(s) to "true".

In addition to this you need to check the resource sets that you are 
using and the static export handler that you configured. Resource sets 
are regular expressions in opencms-import-export.xml that say when any 
resource matching this expression is touched then all resources maching 
another expression should be exported.

The things that I mentioned so far need to be set correctly so that the 
workplace function will export your resources.

Finally, there is (I think) a static export handler that exports only 
independent resources when one of those resources has actually been 
changed in opencms. If you only want to export downloadable files and 
not want to export generated content, then that export handler should be 
the one for you, but I can't remember the name of the class for it. 
After configuring this correctly, the export will kick in automatically 
when you publish new downloadable resources.
