It would probably help you to know I have eased the installation of "in 
development" plugins:

svn up
cd plugins
ant local-deploy

You will be asked the name of the plugin, in this case enter "feeder" 
(no quotes)

(next step is to have Forrest work with the plugins in-place, but that 
is a little more work. For now, each time you edit anything in the 
plugins directory you will need to do the local-deploy above, 
fortunately it's nice and quick though)

To view the docs:

cd feeder
forrest run

There are examples in the docs.

One thing to note, in the recent RT thread on plugin infrastructure we 
have decided that pugins should not us URLs in the form this plugin 
currently uses them. This means we will shortly be changing the way the 
URL is created. Functionlaity will remain the same, you'll just have to 
update your site (assuming you choose to use this plugin).
