I'm going to be gone for a week; I'll look into it when I get back.

This is related to a problem I've been thinking about for a while.  At you can see that the sites and logs are accessible as
part of the webapp so presumably forrestbot builds the sites into subdirectores
of the forrestbot exploded war.

To view sites, either this must be done or webapps must be set up so that the
sites and logs are accessible somehow in the URL.  e.g.

http://domain/forrestbot/logs/mysite.txt is part of the /forrestbot webapp
http://domain/forrestbot-logs/mysite.txt is it's own /forrestbot-logs webapp

The advantage of the first is that users don't have to set up a webapp for logs
and a webapp for sites.  The disadvantage is that forrestbot has to generate all
it's files into the webapp directory.  This is quite unnatural, especially if
you aren't going use the webapp.
