Apps uses cocoon, and is mostly broken (plan to fix tomorrow). And you
ment 'affected', not infected. Even if you didn't, make it seem you did

there are a few.

sounds good.

You mean with making those changes? After I see it working for
excalibur, definately =)

I want them to work with the right DTD; don't care which generator, as
long as there is one =)

it's in jakarta-site and jakarta-site2, mostly. The custom configuration
is, according to this ant snippet (from phoenix/docs.xml):

        <anakia basedir="${xdocs.dir}"
            excludes="stylesheets/** history/** changes.xml

in the file xdocs/stylseheets/docs.vsl. To use a different file you'd
have to modify the projectfile="" and includes="" properties of all
anakia tasks in all documentation.

To use a different DTD you need to modify docs.vsl; it would probably be
best to create a custom velocity.jar though as there's quite a bit of
stuff hardwired into the sources.
