Hmmm, that's really strange, I actually managed to build them without 
errors, it's really puzzleing :-?

Oh well, as long as it now works, good :-)

What if in the build we add for now a copy of newer files from webapp to

It was the main reason I came here for. You haven't seen much progress 
in past months because I used the time to help get Forrest and Cocoon 
better, like making the CLI output a bit better (still need working), 
not choking on links, Forrest webapp for speed, etc.
I'm happy we finally got to this point.
