Yes that is normal. On the first run it needs
to 'svn co' the large forrest/site repository.

I don't know. If you think that things have
become corrupted then might need to manually
remove stuff and start again. This might mean
to remove site-author/build/forrest-docs
and site-author/work which is where forrestbot
operates (see site-author/publish.xml).

The last time that someone else tried the
publishing, they had some troubles.

I was thinking last night that i should do
the publishing this time. Then you try with
a smaller exercise, e.g. one modified doc,
no new docs. Going to do that now.

Thanks again for trying. Hang in there.
