Sorry, I'm nudge-resistant. I like to contribute to open source projects
that I use, but in this case I don't know much about the underlying
technology. Perhaps if I get bored (not likely) I'll try to change that.

No, it works as intended - I wasn't paying enough attention to the
error, it referred to something else.

I have done that and the additional URIs are mentioned in the list of
files that forrest works on. What I have problems with is figuring out
to what the path in the "dest" attribute (FOR-300) is relative to:
absolute paths worked, relative ones don't (no error message, no file).

It uses dest="../../site-author/build/site". That might be relative to
site-author/conf/, but going up the corresponding number of levels
relative to my cli.xconf didn't work. Any suggestions?
