Jake does his site himself. Volunteers sent him things
like hisnts for scanning, validating, etc. and he
compiles the lists. The Books added he somehow gets
from the bookshare site simultaneously. Until
recently, he was able to post them on his site more
quickly than bookshare; the list didn't get to the
bookshare site until around noon Pacific time the next
day. Now they have the additions in proper
time--though so far no bookds have been added to the
collection since last Friday. People may be gone to
conferences--or otherwise busy trying to do all that
Gustavo did.

It is impressive to me that Jake, being a college
student, can do all that he does--just as I'm
impressed that Jamie can do all that she does. 

If by page stripper you mean header stripper, that's
done automatically but not too well by something in
the bookshare program. Unfortunately it strips out
other things, too, like chapter titles and sometimes
page numbers, so validators or scanners who
pre-validate before submission usually delete the
headers themselves. Jamie's procedure--blank line,
page number, blank line, text or, when the page number
is at the bottom, text, blank line, page number, blank
line, page break--is the correct one to follow. And,
as someone else posted, to protect chapter titles, put
someting lit books title or the word chapter before it
so that will get stripped instead of the chapter title
or number itself.
