I am using a workaround now - instead of calling forrest directly I call 
it from a ANT script as described here:

I am not sure if it is necessary to create an issue. If someone can 
confirm that specifying files for copying in the next version of forrest 
is supported then it's ok for me.

While playing around with the problem I found out that files placed in  
content/ and not in content/xdocs are copied correctly when I run 
'forrest'. But on the other side 'forrest run' doesn't work anymore 
since it can't find files placed there.
