Specically I found :-

http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?diff_format=h&view=rev&revision=530318

Which indicates you did a manual update.

I found this 'testing forrestbar' thread :

http://marc.info/?l=forrest-dev&m=117661362719428&w=2

This only mentions how to build and deploy it locally , nothing about
publishing it to our site.

So, on the 10/04/07 you updated the 
site-author/content/xdocs/tools/forrestbar.xpi

and on the 19/04/07 you manually updated the
/site/tools/forrestbar.xpi

I'm afraid I don't see any other discussion on the hows and whys.

I'm assuming you built locally and copied it over to those locations before
committing/publishing.

I am happy to do whatever needs doing to update both versions and document
it, so whenever you or anyone else does get time to clarify anything ...
