It is amazing, but it always happens. We forgot one really
important thing when we prepared our announcement email.

We neglected to tell them where the website was.

>   Introduction & History
>   ----------------------
> 
> Forrest is an XML standards-oriented project documentation framework
> based on Apache Cocoon, providing XSLT stylesheets and schemas, images
> and other resources. Forrest uses these to render the XML source content
> into a website via command-line, robot, or a dynamic web application. 
> 
> This is Forrest's first public release.  Forrest was originally
> envisioned [1] as a Sourceforge-like documentation management framework
> for xml.apache.org projects.  Eleven months later, Forrest is a much more
> focused, generic system.
> 
>  - All xml.apache.org assumptions have been eliminated: Forrest can be
>    used in any project.
>  - Forrest's cross-project goals have been put on hold while effort is
>    put into making Forrest a good single-project tool.

>   to give the Forrest community a trial run in the process of Forrest
