Subject Re: questions concerning icons for forrestbar

Hi Frederic,
First of all you need to do a CVS checkout and all your questions will be 
answered. ;-) Cehck out if 
you haven't used winCVS before.  I know you have installed it, but have you 
used it yet?
If you don't want to use CVS, just get a recent snapshot from and unpack this.  Locate the 
src\resources\forrestbar directory and you will find all the necessary files.

If you want to test your icons, just type "build forrestbar" in the 
directory where you unpacked the source and this generates the 
forrestbar.xpi file in the build directory.  I think you know what to do 
with that file.

Regarding the colors, I think you it would be cool if you could use the 
Forrest colors from the site, but appart from that you are free to create 
something beautiful.  I know you can do it. ;-)

Let us see what you can do.


PS1 I'm assuming you have installed a Java VM.  I know you have done so 
otherwise Tomcat wouldn't run on your machine.
PS2 Leuk hé zo ne keer in het Engels babbelen.
