I'd like to counter this one, but haven't found a shop that sells time.  My 
days are missing about 24 hours each day. :-(
Once I get control again over my time (at the moment it's the other way 
around) I'll definitely start contributing again.
I received the Cocoon book by Matthew and Carsten yesterday.  This will 
come in handy to start developing the ideas I have in my head. (It's way 
cool to see my name on the reviewer's page :-D)
I also received a CSS book by Eric Meyer.  I can certainly recommend this 
one.  From what I read in it, it must be possible to lighten the Forrest 
skin by several kilobytes by using CSS in a balanced way and still get a 
good looking page in older browsers.  Not an easy task, but well worth the 
effort if you ask me.
I'm Technical Editing a book by Andy King on "web site optimization" for 
New Riders.  The info in this one will come in handy at this task. It seems 
that a skin html code reduction of 50% is feasible!
IMHO this is very important if we want to promote the forrest skin to the 
other Apache projects.
