Hmmm... news about us forming could be ok for me... (IMHO that is)

Forrest should definately allow for a simple way to show the current 
site and a WIP site, using a sort of staging system.

We are discussing how to do it well on the

We should use it as soon as it's ready; in the meantime we'll put drafts 
in the /drafts URI space.
