What Ross is suggesting is to enable each committer at
Incubator to use a local forrestbot. No i have not yet
enabled that for Incubator. If people think that it will
help, then sure.

However the current procedure is still simple enough:
http://incubator.apache.org/guides/website.html
Esentially the same two steps that a local forrestbot
would do: 'build', allow you to review, then 'deploy'.
