yes, there is overlap: Forrest could be considered a publication/publet, 
which could be based on Lenya for instance

I don't think this makes sense, because Lenya is not just about
documentation, but on content management in general. I rather think
that Lenya and Forrest should talk about interfaces and common 
components which would lead to consolidation

to be honest, I don't fully understand why Lenya actually has to look 
for apache known names. AFAIK many board members know Lenya committers, 
the Lenya community is growing constantly, the Lenya community is 
friendly and well-behaved, the number of people using Lenya is 
constantly growing .... so where is the problem?

Please don't get me wrong, but I'm getting a bit tired about this FUD 
thing or maybe I should just got to bed now ;-)
