The docs for the maintenance branch are a bit different (no Changes and
Todo pages, no Development/Alt Design) which I merged manually from HEAD
for the previous RCs. Another reason against using ths docs from
xml-site is that it would make it harder to create a distribution again
later from CVS (say build the release again in five weeks)
And I prefer changing the docs offline (forrest run) but thats just a
matter of taste..

I think I'll just temporary remove the <warning> from the <li> for RC3.

According to the webpage Forrestbot is using latest Forrest but it
doesn't seem to use the validate-sitemap target ;-)

The "Font specified in font.properties not found" warning only happens with
JDK1.3 under Linux and is no serious problem at all IIRC.
