What is "development" and "developer" in the context
of Forrest? IMO every person who creates a documentation
presentation system using Forrest is a developer.

IMO if the requirement is for a basic website,
then Forrest is not the correct tool.

On the other hand, if the content needs to be drawn from
various different places, and integrated, and perhaps some
specific content handled and presented in different ways.
Then Forrest is relevant.

One needs to be a developer to enhance the current set
of plugins or to create new, perhaps private, plugins.
For example i have an on-line store plugin for one of
our websites.

Configuring sitemaps and stuff requires a developer.
IMO the "sitemap" and "locationmap" are fantastic.
