I haven't committed a test site to SVN as I do not have the time to 
create one right now and realised I can't upload the one I had in mind 
because of licensing issues.

So, I've uploaded a demo site to my apache web space so people can play 
with. To have a look at the plugin capability:

svn switch

[optional] forrest available-plugins

forrest install-plugin

enter 'IMSManifest' at the prompt

(forrest downloads the plugin and installs it)

download the demo site that uses an IMS Manifest instead of site.xml and 
tabs.xml from

Then run forrest as normal.


forrest will not run until you have installed the plugin since the last 
stage of the install process is not yet automated. This stage inserts 
the necessary sitemap mounting instructions in plugins.xmap, the 
required snippet is in the file you get from CVS so if you try and run 
before installing the plugin it will complain about not being able to 
find it.
