No harm done, quite the opposite in fact, your post made me consider 
what aspects of PlanetCocoon I agree with and what aspects I do not 
agree with. It also made me question whether my boundaries are in the 
right places.

Having considered your points about "self-reliance" I would like to make 
it clear that I feel it is a mistake to build a Cocoon documentation 
solution that is based on anything other than Cocoon. This has nothing 
to do with "self-reliance" in the way you describe it, it is a rel;iance 
on the Cocoon community, because, at the end of the day, that is all 
Cocoon has. It is to do with drawing on the strengths of that community. 
Everyone  here knows Cocoon, most do not know Drupal or PHP.

However, PlanetCocoon clearly has some effort going into it, and some of 
your ideas are excellent. It would be a real shame if your enthusiasm 
was dampened by what you perceive as "self-reliance".

It is my hope that once you have shown how valuable some of your ideas 
are then attention within the Cocoon community will turn towards 
embracing the some of the solutions you are designing and implementing 
them within a Cocoon based application. In other words I see your 
current Drupal implementation as a precursor to a killer Cocoon based 

In the meantime I will try to help build the necessary plugins to 
Forrest to enable your work to be brought into the official Cocoon docs 
with minimal effort (and vice-versa if the Cocoon community wish that to 
be so).
