Welcome back Carsten. You probably have stacks of email
to catch up with. Here is the reason for my questions.
 Re: review of sitemap component documentation

That part i understand. The part that i am having trouble with
is the mechanism by which it determines which java files to
investigate to see if they do contain those tags.

That is the next stage of my mission. Once all possible components
are identified, i will add the javadoc-like tags to them and we
can start adding the documentation. The abovementioned table lists
the components that do currently have the tags: not many.

That is what i thought too. I have local modifications that does that,
but it seems to not find all components. The SitemapTask has
 // Class Constants
 private static final String SERIALIZER = "org.apache.cocoon.serialization.Serializer";
 if ( javaClass.isA(SERIALIZER) ) {
which misses src/java/o/a/c/serialization/
perhaps because that extends AbstractTextSerializer.

Thanks, i was hoping that you would help when you returned.
I will commit the work that i have done so far in the 2.1 branch.
