No. I think that you are not understanding.
Ross was saying that Forrest does this svn2png
automatically, You do not need a special project
sitemap. The resources.xmap is part of main forrest.

Everything should just work out-of-the box if you
put files in xdocs/images/foo.svg and refer to the
output documents as images/foo.png

Did you see issue FOR-229
Some SVG files (but not all) need the DTD declaration
to be commented-out.
