Just go to the main sourceforge page, search for jeuclid project, 
downloads are available there.

I'll be willing to help out as much as I can, we will need this in a few 
months time. Better still, we are currently recieving applications for a 
full time paid position to work on an Learning Content Management 
System, that will be using Forrest. Once we have that developer they 
will be able to help out in this and other academic related areas.

First of al we need to know that Jeclid does what it says. That is we 
need to be sure we can get it working with Forrest and spitting out SVG 
from a MAthML input. Probably best to work in Cocoon first, we'll worry 
about how to put it in Forrest later (not sure if it should be part of 
the main distribution, MathML seems a little specialised for that).

Can you try and get the component running in Cocoon/
