How about:

Versions: 0.2, 0.3-dev

Components (taken from status.xml):
  schema (DTD improvements)
  skins  (XSLT presentation)
  seed   (seed project bugs)
  webapp (running Forrest with a live cocoon)
  validation ( project validation)
  other  (anything else)
  docs   (Forrest website)
  build  (Source build problems)
  code   (Source code)
