Thanks for fixing some of the docs already, David.

Some questions remaining:

>  - Set your Java version to be the lowest specified of our supported versions.
>    e.g. J2SDK 1.4.0

See my ealier posting on this.

> - Run 'build release-dist' to generate the distributions on a UNIX machine.
>    - Two archives are created: apache-forrest-X.Y.tar.gz apache-forrest-X.Y.zip

>    - Use the .tar.gz from the UNIX machine and .zip from the Windows machine.

This doesn't look right but I may be wrong:

- Run 'build release-dist' to generate the distributions on a UNIX machine.
  An archive apache-forrest-X.Y.tar.gz is created.

- Run 'build release-dist' to generate the distributions on a Windows machine.
  An archive apache-forrest-X.Y.zip is created.

>    - Use the .tar.gz from the UNIX machine and .zip from the Windows machine.

Use for what? Should it be something like

"Use tar.gz for installing the test release on a unix machine and zip
for installing it in Windows machines."

What has svn to do with it at that point?

So is r###### to be replaced by the current dev-release number
(0.7-dev).

To be continued once I've read some more :-)
