** Documentation, documentation, documentation
- stop apologising for Cocoon 1
- positive announcement.xml and index.xml 
- both of those docs need a concise overiew at top
(something less than half-a-page that convinces boss)
- much of the documentation is old and still talks about
Cocoon 1 configuration methods and issues
- much documentation still has "Under construction" notices
- people will turn away in droves

** cocoon.xconf needs all parameters and components
listed and briefly explained as internal documentation

** The excellent document "How to Develop Web Applications"
and the accompanying webapp.tutorial are missing from
the cocoon_20_branch

** Better stylesheet for xml.apache.org/cocoon2/
- the slow response of the website will not allow 2.0 to
make its impact.

Also the following issues are summarised at
documentation/xdocs/plan/release.xml ...

** We have many open bugs in bugzilla
** Layout the distribution
** Ensure that licensing requirements have been met
** Decide what to backport from the 2.1 head
