Hi all, and merry Christmas to those celebrating it today!

I've just moved the Forrest-powered redesign of my school's website to 
the production server.

I just wanted to thank everyone who contributed to the development of 
Forrest for a job very well done.  This is, by far, the best experience 
I've had with a content management system so far.  I can't wait to see 
the improvements by the time Forrest reaches 1.0!

As for the skin, there are quite a few project-specific things, such as 
navigation (needs book.xml in every dir), but I will release the source 
in the morning or on Friday so it can be cleaned up (either by myself or 
someone else) and contributed.

If you click the "(c)" in the page footer, it will bring up Mozilla 
Doctor, a web-based CVS editor used for's "Edit this Page" 
links.  Forrestbot will then rebuild the page every couple of hours. 
I'm sure it would even be possible to have Doctor trigger Forrestbot on 
every commit.  Doctor is buried in Mozilla CVS somewhere, but if anyone 
is interested, I will dig it out.

Thanks again, everybody! :)

Marshall Roch
