I agree.  I have seen some incredibly positive things in the incubator
over the last six months.  Interestingly, we are not always following what
is documented in the policy and standards documents - maybe this is a time
to review those documents and reflect on whether what we are doing is
better than what we planned to do or vici versa.  If the former, then we
should update the documentation to reflect reality.

Yup - it might take me a few days to get to it, but I will see what I can do.

On the subject of forrest on Minotaur - I'd *love* to see this happen.  I
use forrest for some web sites of my own, and have built some scripts to
do a CVS checkout hourly of a particular site's source files and then call
forrest if any source files have changed.  So I'm also happy to look at
that.  I have been wary in the past, because the preference from
infrastructure@ has (reasonably enough) been to have the built site in CVS
so that if minotaur crashes they can quickly get sites back online.
