Yes, Marc, these are the core two things we need to capture.

All projects hosted on the site should look similarly, check out
to see what I'm talking about:

The second is how to manage the complexity of having multiple Cocoon
versions (I think we can ignore the servlet container difference for the
moment, that should not be taken into account IMO). We can have each example
app deployed in its own war file, but with today's Cocoon runtime memory
size and twenty different applications, 2Gb or RAM will be soon

Forrest can take care of publishing static documentation, but how about
deploying new functionality in an application? Especially those whose data
source is stored on the live system. I was arguing that we need a staging
area for such things, where people can actually test the application before
pushing it on the live site.

Got it, thanks!
