I'm still trying to catch-up with the reading...
hope you can forgive these questions from oblivion:

- what does this tell about the somewhat promised "skinconf.xml"?

- this puts some pressure on how the bot is working: we gave the 
runner of the bot the opportunity to choose the skin of the 
generated stuff (independant of what the project-content-creator 
would of thought)...(please understand that I _like_ the 
@skin@-stuff to be out)

seems that some of these changes are breaking the current bot
I'll try to look into updating the bot to cope with these changes 

I hope to take this opportunity to slide in the bot under the hoping that bot should keep on working then as 
long as is working... after that we could maybe 
work towards merging(replacing) build.xml and again?
