Ross said it was ok to forward his email (and his offer of help) to the

[...]  I do think a DITA plugin is an excellent idea
and I would be happy to help the Derby project create one.

It may be a good idea to point out that plugins are downloaded
independently of Forrest. So the license of included tools is not
important. If it is not compatible with ASL2 we simply host the plugin
elsewhere. This would allow us to maximise reuse of other projects
stylesheets.

I don't know DITA, or the toolkits available so I have no idea if this
is the best approach for you. What I do know is we want to make Forrest
plugins enable this kind of thing.

I hope to see someone from Derby, with a knowledge of DITA and available
tools on the Forrest Dev or Users list where we can explore this further.
