Also, we are not the content editors, so the site should remain as it 
was before.

BTW, we are featured on now! :-D

I have made some modifications like add a tip on how to use Forrest for 
the site in the Guidelines, fixed a link, and had to make a change to 
Forrest about the search box: it needs a domain name, not a url, and it 
has been broken all the way long these weeks.

Quite startling given the time our site has been up 8-|

Anyway, I will delete the ones in our CVS (sorry David ;-) to eliminate 
possible confusion.

Ruby's bot that copies from CVS to daedalus that is.
It failed completely to add the images and skin directories, thus 
resulting in the image problem.

BTW, I'll be basically offline for a week now, so please help the people 
at commons and incubator to set up the site if needed.

Scott Sanders is helping with the commons one.

Also, when the Jakarta site transformation to Forrest DTD is done, 
someone asked if we could propose it to Jakarta. The initial intention 
was that we needed the docs at incubator for info on Apache, but given 
the possibility, why not ask? ;-)
