Does the book.xml file in your DnI section serve any specific purpose

I ask, because the use of book.xml is deprecated in Forrest-0.6 in
favor of the site-wide src/documentation/content/xdocs/site.xml file.

book.xml is the top-level file that calls in all the chapters. It is indispensible, it is _the_ book, so to speak. I compared it with the book files you have removed. I see that it has a different purpose. The other book files seem to define menus.

I suspect this could be a problem for the Forrest site-generation process[1]:

  Specifying menus with book.xml

  Historically, menus in Forrest have been generated from a
  book.xml file, one per directory. This mechanism is
  still available, and if a book.xml is found, it will be
  used in preference to the menu generated by the site.xml
  file. The book.xml  files can use "site:" URIs to ease
  the maintenance burden  that led to obsolescence of
  book.xml files. In general, however, we recommend that
  users avoid book.xml files.

Is it possible for you to rename that file so it doesn't conflict? (I'm hoping it is trivial for you to change that file name. Perhaps fop-=dni-book.xml or something). If not, I'll see if I can come up with some other solution, although my guess is that any workaround will preclude it from having the same look & feel as the rest of the FOP web site.
