In this case the change is in the way that the plugins are loaded. By 
doing the build clean you removed the plugins, forcing Forrest to 
install them anew. Now if you have the plugin src locally they are 
copied from the src (not quite use in place, but a step towards it).

This means that if you re using svn head, it is even more important to 
do build clean than before. It used to be that only java changes would 
require build clean, now there will be many more such changes.

Of course, in this instance you could have just deployed the projectInfo 
plugin - but that would have been more typing for us both ;-)
