It is a copy of the skin from style.tigris.org as mentioned at
http://forrest.apache.org/0.7/docs/skins.html#tigris
See also the notes in forrest/main/webapp/skins/tigris/README.txt

We can accept patches for the Forrest components of the skin.
The trouble is that the community is not providing many contributions.
Look at 'svn log' for the various files, there have been occasional
changes. I personally don't use it and would rather use pelt for now,
and later the viewHelper stuff, so i have no itch to enhance it.
However that does not prevent the community from enhancing it.

One thing to bear in mind is that the css files are not ours,
they are a copy from tigris.org site. If ever we update the tigris
copy then we need to be sure that we do not clobber our changes.
See the notes in 'svn log' and the README.txt
