The jars have to end up on your HDD anyway.
Will you be able to create snapshots for offline build? Some of the time 
I use a lousy connection. I has never been able to do CVS update 
correctly (and God - it took long) so I've always downloaded a snapshot 
of current HEAD.

I think that anyone outside cocoon-dev does not care really for the 
status of the project as long as they are using a released version.

Cocoon is a magnificent web framework but not too well documented (when 
going into details) so as long as you do not track changes on -dev list 
you won't understand much of very detailed changelog. The simple one is 
already there.

Maybe my approach is a little bit twisted because I'm always using 
cocoon HEAD - even for production.

That is not a plus really. Rather "not minus" :)

What about real blocks? Will maven still be useful?
