Did you use the build target 'forrest available-skins'?

However, watch out with those test skins. It is possible
that they are slightly out-of-date with the recent changes.

Any skins that were made a while ago, will probably need

Great. I remember that that thread stirred a lot of interest.

Testing would be real good. Also we have not updated our

Thorsten, there are also lots of links in [5] to the work you
