Konstantin,

this would mean people adopting Forrest for their project documentation
purposes would perhaps need knowledge about the sitemap syntax. If at
all possible, I will vigorously -1 this because it might decrease the
probability of Forrest adoption.

Trying to catch up mails over the past few days (boy, we've never been
so active before!), I'm starting to feel a danger of deficient
packaging/scoping: we are focusing on the documentation (website,
samples) of Forrest (which we need, of course), but we must not forget
its basic mode of operations: aggregating XML Apache sub-projects
documentation and rendering it in a comprehensive fashion. The XML
Apache main site, the Forrest website, and other sub-project websites
should be the result of running Forrest on top of these documentation
'repositories', the Forrest website basically being the product of
applying Forrest on itself. I will try to draft an RT on this.

No opinion on that one, since they are internal to the sitemap ;-)
