+        available as a zip from the URL indicated in the 
+        <code>plugins.xml</code> file. The plugins build file provides targets

+        to assist with this task.</p>
+        <p class="instruction">To deploy a plugin simply run the command
+        <code>ant deploy</code> from within the plugin directory.</p>
+        <p>This command will, by default, deploy to the Apache Forrest web site.
+        In order to do this you need write access to Forrest. If you want to
+        deploy your plugin to a different location you 
+        can build the zip of your plugin with <code>ant dist</code>
+        and then copy the zip file from <code>build/dist</code> to wherever
+        you intend to host the plugin.</p>
+        <note>Running this command on any plugin will also deploy any
+        changes to the <code>plugins.xml</code> file. If you are deploying to
+        your own website you will have to request changes to the 
+        <code>plugins.xml</code> and have a Forrest committer publish the new
+        document.</note>
