The source of the web site is a checked-out cvs version of the xml-site 
cvs. This cvs is made up of the html docs, generated by the release cvs 
build script. See

Bertrand, if you monitor cvs-related emails, you'll discover many 
committers never update/patch release branch docs, even if the content 
is the same. Under this scenario, release docs would suffer. Also, 
maintaining two sets of web site docs, using the currently xml-site 
mechanisms, would be a royal PITA. It's tedious enough as it is.

Seems to me Forrest has elegantly solved many of these issues. If Steven 
is open now to a separate CVS module/branch for docs, then is there a 
way to proceed with reliable Forrest adoption? In other words, I don't 
want to limit the potential of Forrest by demanding some kind of 
more-or-less stable framework before Forrest is ready for that.
