I did not expect that you or anybody specific answers on this temporary 
problem, but *that* anybody answers.

Sorry for that.

This was the reason that I sent a mail to the list. I assume that people 
living from CVS also read the developers list. Therefore I would not 
update my Cocoon if I knew that something is broken. Of course we avoid 
non-working as far as possible, but there also must be some time to 
discuss about things. If something is broken this highers the need for 
discussion while maybe somebody would not answer if it's not broken 
(lazy ass syndrom, "let it as it is").

Huh? Sorry, but here I feel innocently accused. *I* added the behaviour 
that the source directory is not touched at all until you choose 
otherwise after the complete update worked. Furthermore this helper 
target was only a few days old, it's not something that breaks anything 
(i.e. is needed at run time) and was easily changeable by the developer 
using the target by putting the xslt part into comments. Here the need 
to revert was very much lower than for the above XSP problem IMO.

Why? Are you still not satisfied with the current solution making the 
xslt part optional? (You wrote the above two days after I added this.)

No problem.
