+          Because we are based on Apache Cocoon, a lot of the functionality is
+          provided behind-the-scenes, i.e. we use Cocoon's sitemaps and sitemap components
+          such as XSLT transformers. So there is not much need for Java code in Forrest.
+        </p>
+        <p>
+          For Forrest developers who want to explore or enhance that code, see the
+          Apache Cocoon SVN trunk. From time-to-time we update Forrest's packaged
+          version of Cocoon and so can include your contributions.

+          That said, you will find some Java code in Forrest at main/java/...
+          for Cocoon components that have been developed at Forrest, e.g.
+          Locationmap and Dispatcher. There is also Java code for some plugins
+          with specialised purpose, e.g. PhotoGallery.
