Although we have currently decided to focus on the final generation step 
(not only CLI, but still the last presentation step), of course it does 
not mean that Doco could not be a part of Forrest.

I mean *could* not *should*.

ATM Doco is so virtual that I cannot say anything about it.

Well, Doco ahould be a glue that it to put together different projects 
in a coherent vision. We have Slide (backend), Lenya (CMS), Forrest 

Look at the Forrest community now. Do you think we are ready and willing 
to lead such a design? Speaking for me, not now, I still have lots of 
work to do on what Forrest does now.

To be honest, Stefano has already told us about it and already got 
feedback from all these projects, so in fact he is already working with 
our ACK. Furthermore, there is no decision yet about where to place it, 
or even if it will ever be something autonomous.

What I don't really understand is that he is not using a public Apache 
repository, like the Cocoon scratchpad, to do it. At least we could have 
watched it grow, and he would have not been "slowed" with "community" as 
he now likes to say ;-) In any case, he's free to do so if he wishes, 
and we will see what to do when this thing will land here.
