Newbies are really good at testing the basic documentation and improving 
on it when they have figured out the holes. Please help us to improve 
the new user experience through improved documentation of the parts that 
you find confusing.

Even the most novice of users have something valuable to bring to an 
Open Source community. The novice users develop into more experienced 
users and before they now it they are using SVN head and consider 
themselves an "active dev".

Yes, to the first part (you should not have a status.xml file from 
forrest seed).

"Sort of" to the second part. Installing the plugin will 
not create the status.xml file, it will only make it possible to use one 
to create the changes, todo, release notes etc. that the projectInfo 
plugin can create

No, you should not need to change it. I am merely trying to work out why 
your seeded site is asking for status.xml when, as far as I am aware, it 
should not do so.
