Ah, I thought it was symlinked to 2.1 and not working.  Ok, then
maybe we just need to question the wisdom of silently linking
people to a very pre-alpha stuck in time version of 2.1-dev.

Yes, something like that.  I don't care exactly what, and didn't mean to
destroy the past repository beyond recovery.  The problem is that people buy
a book or read a tutorial online somewhere that instructs them to use
xml-cocoon2 and they do, and silently get neither 2.0.x or 2.1.x, but 2.1
as it existed on the day historical was created which had a broken build
among other problems.
