For "snapshot releases" of dependency libraries, I think adding and 
versioning separate src jars of these specific libraries to CVS should 
be enough - and could possibly boil down to a simple jar-up and commit 
of said library's source code by the committer doing the library 

CVS sandbox size shouldn't be a concern IMHO - distribution size might 
be for some, and would hopefully get solved once we split Cocoon into a 
kernel project and a federation of Cocoon modules|blocks subprojects. 
Until we are there, we might add an ├╗ber-src-jar build target to the 
build system collecting source dumps of those libraries and wrapping 
those into a cocoon-unreleased-dependent-libs.jar we ship along the 
real distribution.

Since Ralph is very keen on this, maybe he can help to come up with 
some Ant tasks. ;-)
