No DTD changes for the last 2 months.

AFAIK, forrest-dev is completely lacking in bearded SGML gurus.  So far,
we have treated DTD versioning like code versioning: increment the
version on large or backwards-incompatible changes.  I have no idea if
this is adequate in practice, or if we must create a new DTD with every
minor edit.

Hmm.  I get the same message, but build/site/compliance.html renders
fine.  I presume it does on your box too?

As for the forrestbot, possibly the script is only logging stdout, not
stderr.  I'll look into it.
