I think Giacomo is right that we won't need all those features within
the Cocoon project but I think our users will need the most in their
projects. If Quartz does everything we want I'm +1 for adding it to
Cocoon. So we would also avoid developing and maintainging our own
scheduler solution because what I understood the Avalon solutions don't
fit all our needs, do they?

Cheers,
Reinhard
