There is a a template document in the plugin docs, you can see its 
output at 
http://forrest.apache.org/pluginDocs/plugins_0_70/org.apache.forrest.plugin.input.OpenOffice.org/samples/openoffice-writer.html

You will find it on your local install or at 
http://svn.apache.org/viewcvs.cgi/*checkout*/forrest/trunk/plugins/org.apache.forrest.plugin.input.OpenOffice.org/src/documentation/content/xdocs/samples/openoffice-writer-howto.sxw

[NOTE to Forrest Devs, we need to patch the plugin docs so that this 
file can be downloaded from the plugin docs site]

We are working on this with the Lenya folk, but there is no ETA yet. We 
already have dull integration with the Daisy CMS 
(http://www.cocoondev.org/daisy) although this is only for 1.2 (they 
just released 1.3). The changes needed for 1.3 support are minimal.

The work on the Lenya plugin is also fairly minimal if you would like to 
join us on the dev list and get it working. It really depends on the 
strength of your need.

We tend to write them by hand at this time, it's easy for technical folk 
;-) The Lenya, Daisy and OpenOffice.org plugins are more for the 
non-technical user.
