If that does not pan out, then how about someone else run
an "official" Cocoon demonstration server, which could get
its content from xml.apache.org (xdocs from cvs, log summaries)
The remote server could easily regularly get the data via
cvs update over ssh2.

Whatever happens, i believe that we *must* have a Cocoon
demonstration server somewhere.

This i could never understand when i started to explore Cocoon.
Cocoon seemed so wonderful, yet the website was a klutz.
Then i figured out that it was a static website ... relief.
However, the first impression was not good.
