Subject trunk build docs using forrest_06_branch (Was: Remove current docs in trunk)
Date Thu, 30 Dec 2004 06:20:49 GMT
The build of Cocoon's static docs in trunk is now using
the forrest_06_branch.

svn co
cd forrest_06_branch
export FORREST_HOME=`pwd`/src/core

cd /usr/local/svn/cocoon-trunk
./build docs
... and see the result in build/cocoon-2.2.0-dev/site/

(Edit first to disable xml validation of xdocs
as there is a strange problem with xml entities being injected
into some of the xdocs which contain tab-characters in their source,
maybe by Cocoon's SitemapTask.)

The 'build docs' uses the new default skin called "pelt" which uses
CSS rather than the old skin which used html tables for layout.
The colours, heading style, etc. can be tweaked in the

If there are no objections, then in the new year i will upgrade
the cocoon-2_1_X branch and the cocoon-site top-level to both
use forrest-0.6 too.
