No, I created no such directory. I suspect you are thinking for 
FORREST/plugins. This directory is created when you build Forrest. It is 
where downloaded plugins are installed to, but it is not where we should 
develop those plugins, otherwise they would all be a part of the main 
Forrest distribution and that kind of defeats the purpose. Everything in 
FORREST/plugins is managed by Forrest itself and is therefore ignored by 

Actually, answering this makes e think it is in the wrong place, should 
it be in FORREST/build/plugins? This would force a reinstall of all 
required plugins after a "build clean" but the process is fully 
automatic so shouldn't have much of an impact (as long as a network 
connection is available).
