i am a dev, but wanted to use forrest as an end user. It was difficult
to get into it without reading and understanding lots of docs. It would
be great if forrest could be used within short time. If you would start
to make forrest to what i have expected- a lightweight framework (easy
to learn and easy to handle) for publishing my website (static- or in
php code maybe) i would be really glad. In my dreams, someone can "learn
everything needed" with 1 hour reading docs. In the second hour he/she
can publish a website with everything needed.

Maybe a experienced forrest'er or cocoon guy can do this, but for me it
was try/error, reading, pain and at the end i decided to do this when i
have more time.

Why not make up a forrest-sandbox module and write a prototype first?
You could see if there are any contributions or how the feedback is. At
the other hand, development can start right now.

Thanks for discussing this,
