Gee, i am not sure what you are talking about Steven.
Why do you think that a "blogging tool" is needed to do a simple
publishing of news snippets? And why do you think that it needs to
be a live webapp? We can still get prompt publishing using the
current Forrest CLI generation of Cocoon xdocs.
Already has an RSS version.

It is easy to get Forrest to do a similar thing to publish a
specific page of news snippets.

That does not equate to Forrest becoming a "blogging tool" and as
far as i know it does not intend to be one (though Forrest does
still have many dreams).
