Subject Fwd: board: r19010 - /foundation/board/board_agenda_2009_08_19.txt

I just noticed this addition to the board report for Forrest and have
not noticed a copy of it going to our developer list.

I totally agree with this addition and thank David for adding it. My
purpose for forwarding here is to highlight this issue to the widest
possible community.

In short we would welcome someone building a release for Forrest -
anyone can do it and as David says it is well documented (and I'm sure
people will come out of the woodwork to help in the odd spare minute).
