Nope, the files have been wiped out from the CVS server... Not much I can do
unless someone made some tapes of what was in there 3 weeks ago (before the
whole thread on "[proposal] Pruning up the CVS tree for real" happened...

And being things as they are we (ASF) don't have them yet. Me and Brian
decided to resort on remote backups on other machines (like on Nagoya), but
I will be putting those in place when Nagoya gets upgraded to solaris-9 and
reorganized from scratch (probably in the next month or so).

The only option is to reconstruct the CVS archive from the source and binary
distributions we archive, or at least, try to bring back the now-existing
"cocoon-2.0" (or "cocoon-2-historic", "cocoon_2_0_3_branch") to a clean
build and reroll another distro ASAP...
