Please ask questions on the mailing list rather than
the issue tracker. Keep the latter as concise as possible.

The MOTD is explained in a 'seed' site skinconf.xml
You need to define a pattern for it to match the uri.

Looking at /forrest/site-author/skinconf.xml the MOTD
is already enabled, so i am not sure what your question is.

The main idea was to be able to display a
short message in a prominent place.

There is often whitespace on the left of the
table of contents. However, my implementation
was not very good.

Anything that you can do to improve that, or even do
somthing completely different, would be good.
