Again, maybe completely off-topic, but could you explain why you give a
-1? Yes, when making a copy you see a version of the codebase in two
places in the repository, but it also allows committers to change the
codebase for the Cocoon specific needs, without interfering with the
original codebase. And new versions of the original codebase can be
merged into the copied codebase without losing (if people know what
they're doing) their changes.

I am just curious, because I use vendor branches myself for managing my
changes to the Cocoon codebase (very small changes).
