Both forrestbot and forrestbar are not in the whiteboard,
they are in "tools"..

I have been happily using forrestbot every week to publish
the Forrest site, and i use it for a work-related site to
efficiently publish two versions of the same site. I do not
see any "stability" issues and i do not see any required
new features.

What do you think that it lacks?
