Ah, you're right, I forgot this is still a beta, not the final release!

However is it correct to assume the main CVS branch will have all the
changes the cocoon_20_branch has, plus some more?

The reason I'm asking is because we want to offer Cocoon as part of
our App Server offering, and there are some logistics in terms of
which source code tree we build on. Internally I maintain a CVS
repository, which is a copy of Cocoon's CVS, plus the changes we do
internally. These changes will eventually be submitted to Cocoon, but
for our team to be able to develop cooperatively is very important to
have a common repository. And since we don't have CVS write access
(yet ;-), this is the only option.

I don't have experience with Xvfb, but I assume it only gives you the
XWindows-like server. What LessTif gives you is the set of libraries
some applications depend on. But don't ask me which, because I thought
the JVM only needs the X11 libraries to do all the graphics
manipulation. If Carsten is right and the missing library is,
then some component in the build process needs the Motif
library. LessTif will provide that library.
