;-) that's good.

Perhaps it should have been discussed before being changed. But for the 
record I would have been +1 for changing, my reasoning having been 
expressed elsewhere in this thread.

I understand your point that live sites is for users but you are not a 
user and the comment was referring to you as a developer of Forrest. 
What you say on your own private sites, as Tim observed, is a whole 
different matter.

Without  an understanding of the importance of community one would never 
be voted in as a committer. There are many people who do not agree with 
the importance of community and they usually join none ASF-like projects.

NOTE: the above comment is *my* opinion, not necessarily that of the 
Forrest project, people with conflicting opinions should not feel that 
the above *personal* opinion in any way diminishes the importance of 
your own views. Please speak up and disagree if you feel it is necessary.

Its not so difficult in
