Hm. This is the kind of dicussion we'd better move to until the proper Apache lists have been created.

Could you clarify to us Lenya newbies what defines a 'publication'? And 
how 'publications' relate to the content management features Lenya 
offers? Is the CMS stuff (editing, staging, ...) to be implemented 

FYI, Forrest's most valuable assets are XML grammars and a clever set of 
pipelines that render a set of docs across a standard skinning system to 
websites. The set of ins and outs is not as big as we would like to see, 
but we have some notions about site hierarchy management and 
publication. And we can configure pipelines depending on the XML grammar 
of the content being passed through it. and are 
required reading if you want to learn more about Forrest (oh yes, there 
were times we had more docs than features in Forrest, since most of the 
Forrest committers really dig pointy brackets :-)

Could you point us to a similar entry-level overview of Lenya? Or 
sitemaps we need to read & understand?
