Being an active dev I always run SVN head. 0.8-dev has been pretty stable
for some time now, we re trying to finish the final "polishing" 
tasks before we can do the release, but it is slow going with most devs
having very little time to do such work.

We need help!

doing a school project 	- and it schould be realized with apache forrest

Status XML is used by the plugin (see the plugins page on our

You should not have one in a freshly seeded site, it is not required as a
fresh site does not use the projectInfo plugin.

	- if i understand you correct, than i will not have a status.xml
file in my folder if i don't 	- have yet installed the
plugin. I'm correct?

Did you do the steps I asked? Can you please confirm the
settings I refer to. I'm trying to work out what is asking for status.xml
(and hoping some other dev/user with a clearer memory of 0.7, or a valid
install of 0.7, can help us out here).

	- i did those steps you introdueced me to seed a new project, but
those steps where exactly 	- the same steps what i did also before.
What do you mean with settings 	- you refered to??
Did you told me what i need to change in the file?
