There is no DTD for status.xml (and that is another issue).

To get it working we only need to modify the stylesheet that
creates the announcement to only show the "announce" entries
(and use status.xml instead).

Good point. I was only considering that we fine-tune the 2.1 revisions.
Actually, i wonder if the changes files are already out-of-sync
between cocoon-2.1 and cocoon-2.0 - i know that when i made changes
to cocoon-2.0 then i did not update the list in 2.1 as well.
