Subject Re: zone for testing forrest
Date Wed, 17 Aug 2005 06:57:15 GMT
Just a reminder that our zone is working.

The Forrest demos there are still very minimal.
Anyway, there is at least something useful now working.
The home page now describes what is available so far:

Basically it is updating the trunk every hour
and reporting any build problems. Then it builds
the "forrest seed site" with forrestbot.

If any Forrest committers want a UNIX account, then just ask.

See more info about the zone, and what we hope to
do with it, earlier in this thread.

More about the mail-from-zones situation below ...

Mads from Infra@ helped to sort that out just before
ApacheCon EU 2005. So now we can send mail from the
zone when one of our tests fail.
