If we want for each project:
upgrade skinconf
search index
custom xmaps
.... other custom stuff that I do not remember

The quick way is to copy for each project. With the copyless brach, 
building forrest means to create a forrest.jar. But for each project 
thereis stuff (like copying status.xml) that needs review.

Doing some trial and error test. It seems that as a minimum the WEB-INF 
has to be copied (24 Files).

But then:

The catalog path within cocoon.xconf is relative, so it needs to point 
to forrest.home . Same would apply to skins and resources/stylesheets.

I did... There is a few mails about this issue.

But our users are not. :-)  Anyway, it was to get some direction on how 
to slip.. it is not important.
