Hi, Shreyas,

Your entry would work with a newly seeded forrest site because it 
includes a samples tab. It won't work for the Derby site because it 
doesn't have a Samples tab. Creating a new tab also requires updating 
tabs.xml with something like this:

   <tab id="samples" label="Samples" dir="samples"/>

However, it might work well for us to add a "Building Derby" category 
for the papers tab and add your paper to that. Put your debugtest.xml 
file in the paper subdirectory, then try adding this to your site.xml:

    <build_derby label="Building Derby" href="papers/" tab="papers">
       <debugtest label="Debugging test failures" href="debugtest.html" 
description="Debugging Test Failures"/>

I've been eyeing John Sisson's recent posts that fine tune how to build 
Derby with Eclipse, and that would make a nice addition to this category 
as well. (I think it was John who posted -- having trouble finding that
