No he does not. The Forrest project said that *they* maintain
the "forrest-site" skin and the "basic" skin. All that i have
done with "basic" in the past, was to try to get it into a
useable state. It has become way out-of-sync now.

I vote +1 on Jeff's proposed skin policy above (with Nicola Ken's
proviso that we keep basic). However, i do not personally
volunteer to maintain either of those two Forrest skins. That is
a job for all of forrest-dev. We must ensure that both skins
reflect the current state of things.

In another thread, some people said that they would work on
a table-less skin. Perhaps that should eventually replace

We should state the skin policy in documentation somewhere.
Does anyone know where?
