Pat, Any thoughts on how it would be to port from Forrest to Maven site

> In whirr we looked at a number of site/doc generation facilities. In the end 
> Maven site generation plugin turned out to be by far the best option. You can 
> see our nascent site here (no attempt at styling,etc so far):
> http://incubator.apache.org/whirr/
> In particular take a look at the quick start:
> http://incubator.apache.org/whirr/quick-start-guide.html
> which was generated from
> http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/incubator/whirr/trunk/src/site/confluence/quick-start-guide.confluence
> notice this was standard wiki markup (confluence wiki markup, same as 
> available from apache)
> You can read more about mvn site plugin here:
> http://maven.apache.org/guides/mini/guide-site.html
> Notice that other formats are available, not just confluence markup, also 
> note that you can use different markup formats if you like in the same site 
> (although probably not a great idea, but in some cases might be handy, for 
> example whirr uses the confluence wiki, so we can pretty much copy/paste 
> source docs from wiki to our site (svn) if we like)
> Re maven vs our current ant based build. It's probably a good idea for us to 
> move the build to maven at some point. We could initially move just the doc 
> generation, and then incrementally move functionality from build.xml to mvn 
> over a longer time period.
