IMHO, cocoon has no real repository integration.

What u mean with Repository block? IMHO there are currently two
approaches hosted within the repository bloch, which should be divided

1.) SourceRepository which acts on various interfaces like
VersionableSource etc. 

2.) Repository interface with a WEbDAV _only_ implementation which is
too flow oriented (no exception handling etc.)

One possiblity is to use slide/webdav sources direct to do what u want.
A problem is versioning and transactions. The first one is only useable
with the WebDAVRepository implementing Repository in the webdav block.
Transactions are not available at all.

Right, all that is also confusing others.
