Hehe, we are both getting confused now. I was referring to building the 
freshly seeded site - not your custom site - I am trying to make sure 
the problem is not with Forrest itself (which is my current suspicion)

I'm almost certain of it, but since I am bug-fixing the plugins right 
now I want to make sure. Here's what we need to do:

- cd forrestcore
- rm -Rf plugins
- ./
- cd [some temporary directory]
- forrest seed
- forrest site (or just forrest as you rightly point out)
- Does it build (with errors about cwiki and ihtml pages)
- svn up (yes again, I just submitted another fix)
- check at revision 55988
- forrst site
- Does is build without errors

If everything goes as describe we *know* the problem is with your site.

We cannot include a working sample since the functionality will not be 
there. What I will be doing as soon as I iron out these bugs is creating 
a page in the seeded site from plugins.xml descriptor which describes 
all plugins, their functionlaity, their status etc.

In the main docs there will be a full demonstration (and I suppose the 
plugins page in a seed site should link back to the relevant section on 
the main site).

Do you think this is enough?
