As the question is what my PERSONAL interest is in the project, I have to 
take the last one.  That's where I will promote and use the project in our 
company and to customers.
As I'm also using Forrest to generate "static" html sites and uploading 
these to non-dynamic servers, I must mark the second one too.
Creating a better web is one of my goals in life, so I must mark the first 
one too.

Hope this answers your question (but I guess it doesn't solve your problem).
