That is how it should be.

No need to have them all in SVN, just the one that
we want to change.

I see that Cocoon put all their config into the
pmc/cocoon section of the private committers svn.

We should do the same for sensitive files like httpd.conf

The main stuff would stay in our forrest/zones svn,
because that is not sensitive and is of use to
other people.

Glad that more people can now start the services.
We need to listen to infra@ and realise it is down.

Next step is to automate the startup. See the fixme
note at http://forrest.apache.org/zone.html#admin
