So, the FOP Dev => Doc Mgmt page:
a) is incorrect as the forrestbot isn't working
b) is technically correct (it works but uses forrest-0.5.x)

Agreed. As soon as I get a BUILD SUCCESSFUL, I will:
1. COMMIT changes to xdocs/
2. determine more recent changes & update xdocs/ w newer content
3. COMMIT changes to xdocs/
4. COMMIT HTML changes using suggestion below from /forrest/ build/site/

Does it sound like I've got the process figured out?

'the year dot.' hmph! never heard it called that, but I assume you mean 
Jan 1, 2004.
