Why may I ask?

When I browse project on SF based on web stuff, if I find a precompiled 
jar I shove it in Tomcat and test it. If not, I usually pass by.

AFAIK many do so, and when I tell the ones I know to get the source 
cocoon distro, they start to whine and don't do it.

This is what I see, my small part of the world, so take it as MHO based 
on what I see, nothing else.

I think you are misunderstanding my tone (and honestly I don't 
understand why you don't like it).

I really think that CVS should be the only way of getting source 
distros, and with SVN it will be easier (WebDAV access). The developers 
should all see the same thing, and VCS is the only way of having 
consistent views. If a dev needs to send a patch, he doesn't have to 
download other stuff for example.
