That is a nice idea I like it, but the actual antries have to be 
maintained by the donator ;-).

...actualy that is already out there (/like/ your idea, only like yet, 
but feel free to enhance it).

You have to extract it to that dir because it is 0.5. If it would be 0.6 
(the same version I am on) you could just place it in there.

After you /forrest/ you will get BUILD FAILED because of the FOR-146 ;-)

...or you do not have to downloadd yourself rather let forrest do the 
/dirty work/ ;-)

One new feature (part of your idea - like I said above) that I tried is 
the forrest.skins.descriptors.

I did it like this
*created a skins.xml and uploaded it to my space [6]
*declared in my local the following skin.descriptor 
(not forget to un-rem that;-)):

...and just change and forrest your project. That 
is not working by the way if you like me on 0.6-dev. The same reason why 
you can not just drop it to the skin-dir.

You can try the other skins but that are just some proof of concept ones 
similar to the one from

If I fix issue 146 on it I will make it aviable as a 0.6-dev version for 
download. So see the above mentioned instructions to test the new 
feature ;-) Please report back if you have any problems.
