If you're concerned about having work to do, the wording of it could  
be something to the effect of:

"Forrest OpenDocument Input and Output Plugins
- "Forrest OpenDocument Input Plugin" enables users to use  
OpenDocument files as source files for generating Forrest-based web  
sites. This would work similarly to Forrest's Plugin's  
ability to use OOo files via as source/input files.
- "Forrest OpenDocument Output Plugin" enables users to generate  
OpenDocument files, which would be accessible from generating Forrest- 
based web sites. This would work similarly to Forrest's FOP/PDF  
output system's ability to generate PDF files via Apache FOP.

NOTE: Work has already begun on the Forrest OpenDocument Input  
plugin, but it is still considered to be in the early ALPHA stage."
