Subject Re: Windows-Installer for Forrest

Johannes,

  I'll say, yes at least for me.  When I eventually turn over
administration of the cfas.org site, I anticipate the person who ends up
with it will use Windows.  I've chosen to use forrest because it's
cross-platform and mostly easy to use.  And installer will help the
latter substantially.

Thanks!
