-Subject: [Important] code-freeze commencing
+Subject: [Important] please test release candidate then vote
+
+We need people to test the release candidate on your projects,
+especially on different operating systems. Just send a short
+reply to this thread that it works for you. See method below.
+
+Download the release candidate and supporting files:
+http://www.apache.org/~crossley/release-forrest-07/
+
+For Windows get *.zip md5sum ################################
+For UNIX get *.tar.gz md5sum ################################
+Get the *.asc and *.md5 that match your chosen download.
+
+It was packed from SVN revision ####
+Java 1.4 or later is required.
+
+If you want to verify the download, then follow:
+http://forrest.apache.org/mirrors.cgi#verify
+
+Otherwise just get on with testing.
+
+Testing and vote period concludes Sunday 2005-06-19 14:00 UTC
+Anyone can test and vote, not just PMC members.
+However only the PMC votes are binding.
+
+So we have approximately 6 days.
+
+Here are some hints:
+
+  * Ensure that the compressed archive will unpack properly.
+  * Verfiy the release, especially if you are a committer.
+  * Follow the README.txt and index.html
+  * Set environment variables.
+  * Don't worry too much about minor bugs. We are looking
+     for blockers, such as it will not run. Many known issues
+     are recorded at our Jira, perhaps you can add more.
+
+* Make a fresh site ...
+    cd my-new-dir
+    forrest seed
+    forrest run ... use the local jetty server.
+    forrest ... build the whole site from the command-line.
+    forrest war ... use your own full Jetty or Tomcat.
+
+* Try it on the Forrest core docs ...
+    cd site-author
+    forrest run
+
+* Forrest was already pre-built. Try building it again.
+    cd main
+    build clean
+    build
+    build test
+
+* Try it on your own project, especially if you have
+    a project sitemap and use some extra plugins.
