The workflow of Forrest is exactly the same as Anakia.

There can be an additional build server for those who
only want to make a quick content change.

Imagine that only one committer ever manages to
find the time to run the Anakia build command and
then review and commit the changes. There would be
the same holdup. Note that this seems to be the case
for the top-level w.a.o/dev/ docs too. 

The problem seems to be that people don't want
to install Forrest locally. There is me and looking
at the commit archives i see that there have been
some others recently.

Yes agreed, the process is broken.
