Yes good idea to get some movement in this area. This will
swell our troops. We could each address our own local needs
for documentation too. This brings more people to work on the
overall issues. It also encourages the other Apache projects
to start experimenting.

Do they also need provision to mount their own sub-sitemap?

I imagine that most stuff will be handled by the main Forrest
i.e. matches for todo- faq- changes- book- howto- etc.

Their project.xtarget snippet will define the name of their
skin parameter and the top bar navigation links.

However, i do wonder if they need a way to handle other things.
For example, they might have a collection of task-*.xml and
a task2document.xsl etc.

Perhaps this is a wish for the future. We probably have
enough tools to get started.
