Subject Windows-Installer for Forrest
Date Fri, 04 Jan 2008 12:57:32 GMT

I hacked together an installer [1] for Windows that does the following:
- Copies forrest 0.8 to the program directory (C:\Program Files)
- Seeds a new project (new folder on the user's desktop)
- Creates desktop shortcuts to start forrest and open localhost:8888

The installation is based on the zip-file for forrest-0.8 and
results in a total size of 23.088.307 Bytes (slightly *smaller*
than the original zip file).

I'll attach the script to generate the installer to this e-mail
(you'll probably need to adapt the sources, line 42).

I don't know how to proceed:
- Is such an installer of general interest?
- Who may help "polish" it (e.g. uninstall, icons, ...)?
- How to commit? The script is easily committed but what about the .exe?
