Hi Eric,
I'm not sure that all the old Celtix content will be all that relevant. 
Probably the tooling stuff will, but I'm looking through the rest of the 
celtix website and it doesn't seem like much of it should come wholesale 
to Apache.

How about we get a simple website with the mailing list, source 
repository, and project description up. I think it would be easiest to 
just use confluence for this stage and have the html sync/export dumped 
to the svn repository for our website. If people are really keen on 
using forest, thats fine, but I find Confluence+Export removes the extra 
generation + publish steps.

Concurrently, lets figure out what our requirements are for 
documentation. I'm not a huge fan of the write, generate, publish 
approach. I find the the wiki approach much faster as you get an instant 
look at what your docs look like and there is no delay in publishing. I 
understand we may want to have stuff checked over before being instantly 
published though, so maybe we can do a hybrid approach with the manual 
as a forest/xdoc/docbook type of thing and the rest of the site backed 
by a wiki.
