Markus, would you please use proper email quoting.
It is very hard to see your replies, as the indenting

I confirm that there is no status.xml for a forrest seed
and the projectInfo plugin is not declared.

If i read Markus' questions correctly he wants a "changes"
pages but doesn't know how to declare the plugin.
See above mail message and Ross' other replies. If that
is not correct Markus, then please explain your issue again.
