But do I need to import them or not?

Yes - I have WTP installed for a few days now, using it on a tapestry 
project that I am working on.  It works fine.

I can't check right now, because this is all at home on linux, and I am at 
work using web mail to access my mail on a windows machine, but I am pretty 
certain that I don't have any disabled.  As I said above, I have been using 
wtp already without forrest for doing some development in tapestry.  It all 
seems to work. 

I just discovered forrest, and can see that it out to help me create my 
tapestry templates.  Hence the desire to load this plugin.

OK I must have it, I downloaded the whole of the forrest trunk with svn 

Do these projects cross relate to each other in the dependancies?

Its a bit difficult to get the right url, because the actual page that shows 
the downloads seems have embedded frames which are dynamically created 
depended on when they make a snapshot.  However, I _think_ this works 

to get you the particular embedded frame.  The normal approach to getting to 
this page is to go to, and follow the download links for wtp 
and select the 0.7 release. 

On this page you will see varying options for the wtp tools.  The first one 
is the all-in-one package that should also contain all the pre requisites.  
This is the version that I downloaded (linux version) and set up.  This is 
the one that I have been using already to create my tapestry projects with
