With current Forrest you will have to install Forrest, and then call it 
from commandline or from the ant build hooks that Forrest provides.

Therre is no maintainance, just make the docs, call forrest, and see the 

But you also have doc validation (currently they really suck ;-), auto 
PDFs, and you can do "forrest run", point the browser to 
http://localhost:8888/ and see changes to the pages realtime through an 
embedded webserver.

And in the near future automatic site updates, complete javadoc 
integration, pregenerated content mounting, etc etc etc.

I have fowarded the visual issues to the Forrest list, feel free anyone 
to do mockups of a better layout and send them to us.
