Idea was to setup svn:externals on src/site/xdoc along these lines:


Would've been better if there was a "guide" directory so we don't pull
in non-guide xdoc. For old releases, we have previously only
maintained these three items rather than entire sites: Guide, Javadoc,
Release Notes.

Could be seen as more of an applicable concern (rather than a library
one). You're right that it probably should be contributed elsewhere.

[digester] started off as XML -> Java so this seems like scope creep.
But its upto the current [digester] developers (you and others who may
be interested in this).
