Here is the contents of a mail sent to David, Steven and Dave B on 16th April:

Forrestbot is using 0.5.1.  IIRC the problem with tokens is caused by the
forrestbot Ant script, not Forrest itself.  It was the pain of trying to
debug things like this that led to forrestbot2 :)  Dave, is fb2 in a
useable state?  It would be wonderful to be able to throw the whole mess
away than try to debug it.

On cocoondev, the forrestbot webapp is in
/www/ and the scripts are in

To commit files to Apache's xml-site/ module while unattended, the
Forrestbot script needs to be run as me (specifically, with my ssh
passphrase loaded in ssh-agent as a parent process):

27351 ?        S      0:00 /bin/sh ./launch-overseer-ssh
27357 ?        SN     1:42  \_ /bin/sh ./overseer
27360 ?        SN     0:01      \_ ssh-agent bash -c ssh-add > /dev/null && exec
nohup ./overseer <
/www/ > overseer.log
27981 ?        SN     0:00      \_ sleep 2

If someone else would like to risk infrastructure@apache wrath they could
also do this and run the forresbot process themselves.

Here is an overview of the issue:
        Key: FOR-129
    Summary: Give forrestbot the ability to upload the breadcrumbs.js file
       Type: Improvement

     Status: Unassigned
   Priority: Major

    Project: Forrest
  Component: Forrestbot

Environment: standard Apache forrestbot at

(From the XML Apache FOP team)

As discussed here [1], after running the publish command from the forrestbot we need to manually
update the breadcrumbs.js within xml-site/targets/fop/skin directory [2].  (The forrestbot
overwrites our breadcrumbs.js with a version that does not work.)

I see no way to currently switch the buggy version that the Forrestbot uses to overwrite the
breadcrumbs.js file.

As an enhancement, to save us the need for the manual reversion everytime we publish the site,
give Forrestbot the ability to read content/skin/breadcrumbs.js in our project directory [3]),
and use *that* file when it publishes to xml-site.

Of course, content/xdocs/* and content/skins/** already transfer over (as defined here [4],
also see [5][6] for the Forrest site, for example.)  We just need the ability for content/skin/breadcrumbs.js
to do the same.
