Dear Dan,

During the weekly overall data update, the OCA bot detects first
who are the 'Proteopedia Page Contributors and Editors' for the page 
it's going to update.

Pure seeded pages, those were the only Contributor is the user OCA,
are completely rebuilt.

On pages with other users' contributions, the bot only updates,
when required, the templates ABSTRACT_PUBMED_ and STRUCTURE_

Any information added or modified by users remains intact.
