Yes, but is it the "concern" of cocoon-doc contributors to test Forrest? 
Sorry, I don't think so. We need a docs-generation system that is 
reliable, so those who want to help don't have to first figure out why 
the docs generation system is broken before they can contribute.

Remember, doc contributors aren't necessary committers. They may be 
one-time contributors with a limited amount of time. I think we want 
them spending the majority of their time on content and **not** on 
troubleshooting a system they may not even use/need...

Just my (at times frustrated) 2 cents for all the times I experienced 
delays because I couldn't build docs on head branch.
