Hmmmm... I don't think we have ever released with a serious issue like 
reporting a successful build when it is actually a failed build. To do 
so deliberately would be a grave mistake since it would affect the vast 
majority of users using the forrestbot webapp.

The stability issues I refer to is not necessarily a problem for the 
majority of users, so need not be a problem for the release. I suspect 
it is a matter of scalability (thousands of pages from 3 or 4 
distributed sources is not a typical use of Forrest).

The issues are already in Jira, e.g. I can't tell you why it is 
not in the 0.8 roadmap, I guess nobody considers it important. So again, 
I wonder if the forrestbot webapp is community supported. If not, it 
should go into whiteboard where such an issue is not a problem.
