Not quite.

Daisy does not write to SVN so the only way to edit the docs are via the 
web interface. It does provide version control, with diffs etc. but, we 
(Forrest) decided that the lack of off-line editing is a real problem.

Consequently, Forrest and Lenya intend to work together. The Lenya folk 
say they can make lenya write to SVN on the back end, thus folk will be 
able to choose their tool.

We (Forrest) are an XML Publishing Framework, we don't care where the 
content comes from. The idea is that projects should be able to use 
their preferred tools, as long as they satisfy the ASF requirements for 
for traceability. Forrest will suck that content out and present it in a 
unified form.

So do we care if Infra moves away to a simpler system? No, I don't think 
we do, as long as the content is in an XML format we will be able to 
incorporate it into the site-build tool that infra need.
