The defpath part is not obsolete, but "forest" -> "repository" should 
probably be applied to the whole file. The last section about "trees" is 
certainly obsolete however.

As long as you are generating the html version using "make 
update-build-docs" (for which you need pandoc, preferably version 
1.17.2), we don't need to see the html version. It's not meant to be 
edited by hand.

Btw, have you signed the OCA?
