The last line of our description (first paragraph of the home page) says:

"Forrest can generate static documents, or be used as a dynamic server, 
or be deployed by its automated facility."

Now this does not actually say that these static files can be deployed 
to any server, but we kind of assumed that would be understood by most 
users. This illustrates why we encourage "newbie" questions - it shows 
where our assumptions are flawed.

We would welcome a new doc that explains the deployment options for a 
forrest site, don't worry about it being perfect, just what you 
understand from these threads. We'll insert it at an appropriate place 
in our site.
