+2. Can I do anything with this besides just running forrest?
+
+Sure.  Create a wrapper script and specify it as forrest-exec in settings.properties.  Here's
an example:
+
+#!/bin/bash
+
+# remove env values set from container 
+PATH=/usr/bin
+CLASSPATH=
+# get env vars
+. /home/user/.profile
+
+# group writable for easier sharing of files with others who run forrestbot
+umask g+w
+
+# you can preprocess something
+xmlfile=$2
+if [ "${xmlfile##*.}" = "xml" ]                # everything after last .
+then
+    target=$3
+    if [ "$target" != "deploy" ]                # don't run snap on a deploy
+    then
+        projectTarget=${xmlfile%.*}               # everything before last .
+	# do something special for $projectTarget
+    fi
+else
+        echo "Syntax: forrest_wrapper.sh -f myapp.xml [build|deploy|...]"
+        exit
+fi
+
+# run forrest
+forrest $*

+# you can postprocess something
