I saw that is the reason why ask here whether you see a possibility to 
use an existing one now. Maybe the one that is deploying our (the 
forrest) site ;-).

I do not want to use or set up the web interface for the moment.

Yeah, that is what I understood from  It states
forrest -f mybuildfile.xml
to execute the bot, right? Can I just add that to the crontab for my 
user@minotaurus? With other work is there forrest installed at apache?

Or is it that I will add it to my local crontab and deploy the site from 
home (or wherever I will set up the machine doing the task)?

How are you (or better forrest) doing it to deploy it?
