http://forrestbot.cocoondev.org is a webapp that automates part of the
update process for Forrest-using sites.  Every few hours it fetches the
latest site XML and renders it (optionally using the latest Forrest).
Users (some anyway - see below) can also manually trigger a refresh, and
trigger a commit (with my uid) to a module, in this case
incubator-site/build/site/.  Forrestbot has proved very handy for
xml-site, which is now 155M and consequently takes ages to update over a
modem connection.  It also saves developers from having to deal with
Forrest.  As long as the docs validate (using any tool), they can be
checked in and published through the webapp.  Separation of content from
presentation and all that.

If there's people who regularly update the site and would like to use the
system, please let me or forrest-dev@ know.  The site's refresh/update
facility is password-protected to prevent random visitors from wasting
the server's CPU/bandwidth.  It's not really meant to be a security
measure - if anyone guessed the password, the worst they could do is
synch the XML and rendered pages.  The server process is running under
ssh-agent+passphrase.

Ah, it's a bug in the forrestbot.  Some tokens are being inherited from
the xml-site module, instead of incubator-site.  I hadn't noticed this
before, because all xml.apache.org sites share mostly the same tokens.
I'll look into it tomorrow.  I've fixed it in the meanwhile by
regenerating the site by hand.
