Excellent! Did you download forrest 0.6? That would be good. The derby 
site is currently at 0.5.1, which I'm planning to upgrade to 0.6 as soon 
as I can. I'm just mentioning that because you might notice that built 
pages might look slightly different. But don't worry, I'll catch the 
derby site up to 0.6 real soon now and the work you're doing will be 
extra motivation.

That would work. Another option that will work with 0.6 is subtabs. For 
example, that would allow a Papers tab with "Internals" and "Externals" 
subtabs. We can play around with it and see what folks prefer.

I agree. It would be very confusing to leave the old stuff in place. If 
somebody felt strongly about keeping them available, they could be moved 
into an OLD spot.

Either zip or tar will work fine.
