Good. However you should do that as often as possible.

No, not good. I do not understand what you are doing.
Why are you copying stuff into the Forrest source tree?

If you are building your own documentation then it
should be completely outside of Forrest, e.g. over
in /home/you/my-docs/ do a 'forrest seed' and add your
new documentation in there.

Why can't you do it how i described in the last thread?
When you do 'svn update', if there were any source changes
to the files that you have modified, then those changes
will get safely merged with yours. If there are conflicts
because someone changed the exact same portion of the file
that you changed, then you will be warned and you will
need to fix them.
