The Forrest project only has control of the
space. So it must be there. All material must be in a project's
website CVS and we do not have access to the top-level "site" CVS.

Drat. I was concerned about that too, but thought that it was only
in the un-released 0.6-dev version. However it is in the released
0.5 version too.

I gather that the reason for recently adding those System Identifiers
as URIs was because there was one major tool that could *only* use
System Identifiers to do the Catalog mapping. These were deliberately
URIs that would not resolve to any actual resource (like a namespace).
Now that change has come back to bite us.

Are there suggestions from anyone? The only thing that i can suggest
is that we ask infrastructure@ to give Forrest committers access to
the top-level site CVS and put the DTDs there. The alternative is
that we remain with no online DTDs and rely on documentation.
