Thanks. I noticed that yesterday and fixed it in CVS.
Now we need to wait for the website to be automagically updated.
It is fixed on the forrestbot website at

The reason for that break was that we were using the wrong

than site:contrib

One really useful thing, and a great way to learn, is to
follow your-project.html and forrestbot-intro.html and
send patches for any out-of-date documentation.

This is one of our biggest problems at the moment.
We do not have enough troops to keep the docs in sync
with the fast pace of development.
