The site can be updated directly from the sources using the Forrestbot 
that is now on

I have heard the complaints from Jason, Roy, KenC, Sam, and others I 
lost track of. I agree. The site *must* be easier to update.

Hence this is my proposal which I'll put to action ASAP if there are no 
wild complaints:
  1 - install the forrestbot on Apache hardware
  2 - have it regenerate the site from source CVS every day automatically
  3 - change the source format of the files from the DocumentDTD that
      has to be learnt to html or wiki format.

This will make users:

  1 - not necessarily have to install Forrest
  2 - edit files easily
  3 - have automatic updates

If there are *major* reasons why this should not be done, speak now and 
bring darn good reasons, as I'm fed up with bickering and want to see 
things done.
