Fine by me.

:-) I'll note somewhere that the script assumes Ant 1.6.

Ok, I'll see if I can check it out and update it through patches.

Ok, I'm lost here. What's this document Upayavira talks about? Is it for
"how to install Cocoon on you hard disk"? Or is it something I should
incorporate in "my" document?

What about the XPatchUsage? Should I rewrite the Wiki page or not?

Well, of course! :-) I haven't yet looked at Cocoon 2.2 other than trying to
get the trunk from SVN, but from what I've seen on the list there are many
things changed.
I'm not going to try and use it (I do need to finish my own project first
with 2.1.7), but I'll try to figure out from your script and the one added
to the current document where the changes are and document that.

Bye, Helma
