The problems are not simple, or they would have been solved
years ago. Follow the site-dev discussions from mid-2004.

It seems that the publishing step is the hardest. No matter
what the tool, that step trips people up. It seems that
committers just will not do it. It could perhaps be automated,
however the requirement to check the generated docs into
svn prevents that (need a committer's svn credentials).

Another complex issue is being able to run doc tools on Apache
servers. We have all been asked to not use people.apache.org
for that. Sure we will soon have the zones.apache.org machine
(currently still in testing phase). However, that is not
scalable. For example we don't want to run various forrest
instances there for everybody to use. Our project is too small
to be able to support other projects in that way.
