           Summary: This tutorial sucks.
           Product: Cocoon 2
           Version: 2.1.7
          Platform: All
               URL: http://localhost:8888/docs/tutorial/tutorial-develop-
                    webapp.html
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Documentation
        AssignedTo: dev@cocoon.apache.org
        ReportedBy: aluter@cobaltpointe.com

This tutorial is confusing.  I can list many reasons, but I would suggest that
someone just try to go through it, and pretend you've never used Cocoon before.

After sucessfully building Cocoon I attempted to use this tutorial.  About half
way down I gave up, because every time a new instruciton came up, I had to
through a stage of debugging them; since each were invariably misleading,
outdated, or just lacking vital information.

A good example is that you don't bother mentioning that we will or won't be
using the example found in samples/blocks/databases/tuturial.  If you are, then
the documentation's quoted text do not match the actual files found.

Another example is that no file locations (and often file -names-) are given. 
How is a new user to know where sitemap.xmap is to be located?  Or what it even
to be named?  I know I can infer this by looking at other examples, which is
what I was forced to do.  But that is not the purpose of a tutorial, I would
believe.

Anyway, I'll come revisit Cocoon -next- project, maybe then the tutorial will
actually be usable, and I'll be happy.
