I think this is short-sighted. Take no offense, Ivelin, I thought this 
way originally too. However, having struggled with Cocoon docs over the 
past few months, given our current system, I'm eager to explore other 
opportunities, particularly those that increase the author pool. New 
authors are emerging, in spite of the negative viewpoints expressed in 
this thread, but I'd like to see if wiki can accelerate that.

I think we need to keep an open mind and be resourceful. If ASF can't 
provide what is needed, I think offers from wynona, outerthought, and 
anywhere-tech should be seriously considered and welcomed.

Problem is, this isn't available, and Wiki tools and hosting solutions 
are -- right now -- thanks to the generosity of companies like 
anywhere-tech and outerthought.

Again, we don't have a dynamic site with ASF to host the inline notes 
option yet:  Forrest doesn't even have this capability yet. Ovidiu 
suggests he was developing this, as an example of flowscript, but it's 
based on Cocoon 2.1 head -- a bit too alpha for Forrest.
