The forrestbot documentation on the website, should work for the latest
release of Forrest.  However, the next release of Forrest (and already in
CVS) there will be a much-improved forrestbot.  There is no documentation
for it yet and the configuration file(s) are not compatable between the
two versions.  If you do want to try the CVS version, currently you would
have to:

* get forrest from CVS built, see "Using Forrest" on the website
* take a configuration file from scratchpad/forrestbot2/ as an example and
modify it setting properties like, user, password, root, host,
module, etc
* these files make heavy use of the <import> task from ant 1.6
so you may have to familiarize yourself with that to understand the
forrestbot code
* run 'forrest -f mysite.xml'
