Subject Major bug with cocoon views -- Using views not really possible
Date Fri, 10 Dec 2004 14:13:22 GMT
Dear Vadim,

I also think, that this behaviour is a bug. To me it renders the usage 
of the cocoon view concept absolutely useless. My major point is, that 
is, that I cannot use the cocoon views to view my current matcher in 
XML. If I try to do that, everytime I have a 'aggreate' or 'cocoon:/' 
protocol in my pipeline, the XSL scrambles the content, because 
previous matchers are also transformed. (see older mails from me)

The only workaround I currently know, is to generate the XML content in 
my own pipie -- not using views. This is not a feature to me, its more 
a big bug.

Where can I add this bug? Or to whom can I talk?

Thanks in advance,
