I keep forgetting to add something...

My employer doesn't care really about what happens to the code, we're 
going to use it anyway as our foundation, whether it's donated to 
Cocoon and we maintain our own "fork", whether you guys want it at all 
or not... All that VNU cares about is that we deliver a platform  based 
on _OUR_ blocks (lots of which you will never see in a million years, 
because they're core of our business! :-)

BTW, not to scare anyone, I work for a news company 
<> , not a software company. OUR blocks will be 
those blocks linking our websites to our backends (Oracle Databases, 
Navision Financials, QuarkDMS publishing environments, and yada yada 

All they asked me for for is some form of "recognition" if the code 
ends up in Cocoon land (quick quick, go back and modify the @author 
fields in the classes to include VNU Publications), so that they  can 
prepare a nice "press release" to please our investors, and they can 
have better discounts when asking for something to be developed by 
Orixo :-) (hi guys! :-P)

My _personal_ requirement, is that I wouldn't want a clean-cut fork to 
happen, because at the end of the day, I'd have to abandon the Cocoon 
fork and get back to the VNU's fork (doh, they pay me).

A directory on the CVS repository which I can check out and build 
without requiring too many dependancies on Cocoon's main "publication 
core" will be more than enough, I can build my own "Ant" build files. 
That would make my (working) life _so_ much easier...
