More likely I'm just not explaining myself well enough.

Ok. Perhaps I need to think this one through some more. I use Subversion
to store (and version control, funnily enough) my src/documentation
tree. When I get done authoring (read: ranting) I commit my changes with
a log message describing that set of changes.
* I'd like to see those log messages somewhere in the documents
generated by Forrest. *
Ideally, the choice of publishing method (forrest site, forrest run
etc.) would be orthogonal to the presence of the generated change-log.
Also, whether the documents to be rendered exist in a working copy or in
the repository only should also be irrelevant. To be honest, I don't
even know how to get Forrest to read source documents from the
repository anyway.

Hope this is clearer, noodl
