The sugessted myproject/resources branch could have a plugin-dir

I guess I don't understand Forrest enough to follow you into this
discussion. So unless I will understand this later on, I'm fine with
keeping the webapp as a directory and the place for plugIns. But I'd
still vote for renaming the build-dir.

Ah, I'm beginning to understand. But the why are they not part of the
forrest programm tree? Why have them in the project tree at all?

So anyway. If that is required for some reason that 'build' is
appropriate naming I guess. In that case we should just take site out
of there?
