I'll update index.html file to indicate going to http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/[sup-project]
for latest updates...

given the limitations imposed by 1.5.

That's what I thought…

While going through the eradication process, I noticed a couple of issues that I'd like address
before I can eradicate the xdoc format from the BUILD process (they're intertwined):

1. batik/javadoc/ generation is part of the Batik BUILD process (don't know if the other projects
are similar), and eradicating Forrest might also eradicate the step that generates this:


Is this something I should be concerned about, or are javadocs built at run-time by IDEs (NetBeans,
Eclipse, etc.)?

2. There is a file generated at the time of build, that builds the /batik/jarDependImg.png
(it's currently missing on the 'Installing Batik' page):


I've uploaded the latest available version of the file and am currently waiting for it to
show up on the site…

3. *MINOR* There's a note in fop/trunk/build.xml about `distclean`:

<!-- It would be better to make dist depend on distclean. But as long as the forrest projectInfo
plugin depends on a higher Java version (1.5) than we use for the compilation (1.4), leaving
it out enables a workaround -->

Does this mean we could switch to `distclean`? If so, let me know and I'll make that adjustment!
