I'm not a forrest expert, but the maven format looks simpler.
I will ask Arvid for the differences and for a possible migration path.

Is the documentation for the tags in the forrest trunk generated?

The url for the xdocs is wrong:
svn co
should be
svn co

Why you want to mavenize the website first? I think this should be the 
last part. In tobago we start from ant to the "maven task for ant" and 
finaly maven.
Maven is not a publishing system like forrest, but it makes many things 
simpler for a developer.

The Tobago website wasn't "mavenized" tobago was "mavenized".
We use maven because it has dependency management is idea aware
a defined lifecyle... see

Can you describe the Solaris zones or where I find information?
