I've attached the patch to this mail. You can apply it from the FORREST_HOME 
like this:

$ patch -p0 <content-motd-page-contract.diff

Please, note that I've not tried to port all motd functionality from 
$FORREST_HOME/main/webapp/skins/pelt/xslt/html/site-to-xhtml.xsl to the 
dispatcher contract. I've just picked what I needed to achieve my goal.

That being said, If the patch is fine with you I can attach it to an issue at 

Hope it helps,
