There were lots of discussion a while ago on the docs list regarding 
"component reference pages", basically manpage-like reference docs on 
the various components (Blocks or not).

The general idea was to have a reference page for each component, 
partly generated from the component's source code javadoc tags, 
augmented by xml or text-based narration.

This hasn't happened yet as nobody really took the plunge, but anybody 
willing to help on this is welcome - in the meantime the qdox block 
allows javadoc-like tags to be processed by Cocoon when generating the 

In the meantime, the best reference for the blocks are the samples, but 
you're right that a well-organized documentation would be better.
