Or relegated to the internal confines of a client's organization. :-(

I agree and thats my point. Tools are useful, but they are not the  
stumbling block. Lets just get it done. If there is any documentation  
out there waiting to be published send it to me and I'll start the  
process, manage it and do what it takes to get it published. I'm  
tired of these constant discussions about the poor state of Cocoon's  
documentation. In its simplest form Cocoon is incredibly simple to  
use. Sure Cocoon is multifaceted and allows you hundreds if not  
thousands of ways to publish and create web apps, but once you know  
what those ways are, its really not that difficult. Lets start making  
this clear to users.
