Subject [jira] Commented: (FOR-901) Review the note on the home page about first forrest run and retrieving plugins from network

Gavin commented on FOR-901:
---------------------------

Tim I guess will hopefully clarify, but from what I remember the comments on the main page
are still correct.

I'll repeat them in the Issue so we don't have to keep going off and reminding ourselves :-

"...The first time you run Forrest it will attempt to retrieve some plugins from the Internet.
This will happen whenever a new plugin is specified. For more information see the plugins
documentation...."

Forrest will attempt to retrieve any required plugins from the internet.

1. Check if plugin already exists in build dir
2. Check descriptor file & see if local version needs updating and update it if it does.
3. Get it locally from forrest/plugins.

This happens every time any build is initiated, and will obviously do so from a fresh install
of forrest.

Now, when forrest is first downloaded - do all the plugins come with it in the package or
not, only having worked on trunk I don't know, I remember this being a question for for the
new release package but the question is relevent here too I guess, if there is no internet
connection when a user first goes to use a plugin then if a version exists locally from the
intial download of forrest there is no problem - aside from it maybe having gone out of date.
If no local version exists and no internet connection exists then a failure needs to happen
with a warning message as to possible reasons why.

Summary then, if the above is correct then only slight modification to the note will be neccessary.
