I think this is a side effect of the move to copyless. If your project 
has custom xmaps then I'm afraid you need to make some changes for 
Forrest 0.6. But it will be worth your while in the long run (honest ;-))

It used to be possible to replace *any* of the xmaps by placing your own 
version in the project directory, these were then copied over the 
Forrest ones at build time. However, with the move to copyless this no 
longer happens. Instead there is now an extension mechanism for the 
sitemap (as opposed to replacement). See

If my hunch is correct, what you need to do is copy whatever customised 
matches you have in your *.xmap files into your sitemap.xmap. Remove any 
matchers that duplicate ones in Forrests own sitemaps.

The good news is that this makes upgrading to future versions of Forrest 
much simpler since your project sitemap will only contain your 
customisations, therefore no need to diff your custom xmaps with Forrests.
