The website is supposed to update itself automatically when we push
stuff, so things like release notes etc get automatically generated.

    Verify that the release notes, which are built from the CHANGES file
    in the release, have been updated. This is done automatically by the
    commit-hook, but if you see a problem, try the following steps:

        cd /var/www/openssl
        sudo -u openssl -H make relupd
        sudo -u openssl ./bin/purge-one-hour

This didn't happen unfortunately. When I ran "make relupd" manually I got:

make: *** No rule to make target
'/var/cache/openssl/checkouts/openssl/CHANGES', needed by
'news/changelog.txt'.  Stop.

That particular make target is related to the *master* CHANGES file
(there are similar targets I think for other branches).
