OK, this kind of reassures me. My major intention for switching
to Cocoon 2.2 were that

- Lenya 1.4 will not depend on an "outdated" Cocoon version when
   it finally is released

- we could benefit from the latest concepts and components

- the Cocoon community might react to our wishes and needs
   and allow us to influence the development (of course this is
   just a random thought)

These issues are certainly not that important if the overall
functionality of Cocoon 2.2 won't be that much different from 2.1.

We want to get rid of using deprecated Cocoon code nevertheless,
so IIUC upgrading to 2.2 will probably be possible later on.

BTW, is there a policy about cross-posting, e.g. to lenya-dev?

Thanks,
