Here is an overview of the issue:
        Key: FOR-356
    Summary: multi-user capability (Was: Solaris problem)
       Type: Bug

     Status: Open
   Priority: Major

    Project: Forrest

Back in August I reported a problem about using Forrest in a
multi-user environment. I have recently downloaded Forrest 0.6 and
tried to install it on both a linux machine and a solaris system.

I have found that there is still a problem that prevents generic users
from using Forrest if installed as root. The problem is caused by an
attempt to write in the forrest source code file area. I don't know
which piece of code causes this error, but I have found that doing the
following can solve it:

chmod a+w $FORREST_HOME/context

This solved the problem on the linux system, but not on the solaris
system, because the filesystem where I have installed forrest is
mounted read-only. In order to permanently solve the problem, it would
be necessary to find the piece of code that requires write permissions
to $FORREST_HOME/context (and change it, since there should be no
reason to write there).
