I'm with Joerg here, there's no harm in leaving it sit there for a
little longer, and there are people using it.

I'd be +1 for removing all its documentation from the site though.

+1 for the rename
-1 for moving it into core, for the same reasons as Joerg.

Cocoon 2.2 is indeed too far off, but 2.1.5 seems way to soon for me. I
think a more realistic target would be August/September. Even then, it
will mean that we've gone from nothing to a first release in just one
year, which is by all open source standards pretty fast.
