Claiming the user's point of view I say we must definitely fix more 
bugs. The last time such a call was made we lowered the count to 100 
from 130 IIRC. If we now fix/reject/... again 30 bugs I'm satisfied ;-) 
I know all the work on this is voluntary, but we can't ignore the users.

Some issues:

1. POI: No real problem, but what about the code move to the POI 
project? They seem to prepare the 2.0 release, so I guess they only have 
no time at the moment ...

2. XSLTC: Geoff already mentioned it. I know of two heavy bugs in our 
2.5.1 XSLTC: : stylesheet 
includes, seems to be already fixed in XSLTC CVS. : top-level 
variable with document(). This bug is so annoying because the stylesheet 
"works" in a way, but the cause of the failure is not obvious. And we 
don't know the reason for it until now: XSLTC command line works, Xalan 
works. But if we switch from Xalan to XSLTC in Cocoon the stylesheet 
stops working.
The simplest fix would be to make Xalan the default again, but I don't 
like this. Has anybody the time and enthusiasm to find out the reason 
for the bug?

3. Caching: There still exist some bugs related to caching:

and maybe also

Independent on this we should add more "Components" for Cocoon on 
Bugzilla. "Core", "General Components" and "Sitemap Components" is not 
really helpful I guess.
