It is just that Cocoon docs and current publication process
are very complex to get Forrest to build and publish. Also many
hands are needed and not much action yet. See cocoon-docs list
and the proposal-in-preparation at:

Forrest is fine for prime time - many of us use it for
production sites. I do not care if it is not fast - it does
much of what i need already.

In my opinion there is too much talk and new feature rush, and
not enough attention to existing features and documentation.
This is particularly evident on cocoon-dev but also forrest-dev.
Such lack of polish is our main downfall.
