What about

It is not *ownership* that "is the website of the dispatcher inventor:
Thorsten Scherler" claims but stating the matter of fact. I had the itch
and scratched it (and still do) as a historical fact. ;)

Stefano Mazzocchi is the inventor of cocoon and Sir Berners-Lee is the
inventor of the www, neither one of them claims ownership AFAIK. Another
story is the net and the US government. ;) The initial forrest code is
coming from Nicola Ken Barozzi and Ross Gardler has started the plugins
both do not claim ownership neither do I with views aka v2 aka
dispatcher, still the initial code came from this people.

Doing some research on the forrest history for my presentation I noticed
that we are starting to hide historical facts and motives. I know we
still have all this information but it is well hidden (e.g. [1]).


I strongly agree with "none of it would be possible without the rest of
us" but one should not confuse one thing from the other. 

Like the very first dispatcher site ever online is from Diwaker Gupta
[2], helping us (especially me, back then) to demonstrate that one can
use the dispatcher in production. It was the very first version
codename: view. Thanks again Diwaker.

I like history and the humanity would be nothing if not people would
have kept track when and how something happen.

Do not get me wrong but I would like to start a history page about
forrest (here) and keeping track of who did what, because it helps to
understand us currently as project and where we are heading. 


BTW why do we versioning old docu? ;)
