Sorry for the delay, I was off-list since monday.

The list looks ok, and I'd like to detail a bit more the reasons for 
success stories and their content.

The current Cocoon site is mainly targeted towards *users* of Cocoon, 
i.e. people that already made the choice to use Cocoon. We need is 
something to attract new users, and the way for this is to show people 
*what* they can do with Cocoon before showing them *how* they can do it.

So success stories should start by functional description (the "what"), 
followed by a technical description (the "how" : architecture, 
components used, etc).

Success stories will also be the place to show all these Cocoon-based 
intranet applications that aren't publicly visible on the Internet (all 
the projects we made here since 2 years are for intranets).

Finally, showing the wide usage range of Cocoon will allow more people 
to consider it as a usable and mature product instead of "just" a nice 
innovative technology. This is especially important in large companies 
that prefer maturity to technological risk.
