Subject one suggestion for new documentation
Date Thu, 10 Jul 2003 12:39:20 GMT

  as someone who makes a living writing courseware manuals, it just
occurred to me that it might be handy, in newbie documentation,
to first walk through the structure of the forresthome directory,
and explain to new users that this directory hierarchy is what will
be the basis for their new web site.  that is, i don't think it's 
enough to just say, "type 'forrest seed' and you have an initial
web site".

  it would be much more useful to show a new user, seeded from what?
what's the basis for this seeding?  where does this info come from?
what does it represent?
