Thanks for updating the page Vadim.

However, there is a more fundamental problem about the documentation: we 
know what we want in the end (fabulous documentation on the website) and 
what we have now (documentation of various quality scattered over 
several places), but what to do in the mean time?

Holidays have surely erased much of my memory ;-), so I'm trying again 
to clarify things for myself. Do please chip in and correct me if I'm wrong.
I've looked through the archives and tried to retrieve what was 
generally agreed on:

Current state:
documentation of varying quality in wiki, Daisy on Cocoon zone, website 
and java docs.

End result:
extensive, coherent, up-to-date documentation of excellent quality at 
the website. Note: I'm not sure whether will be the 
"official cocoon documentation location" or the Daisy repository, but 
that's a discussion that can be held much later in time.

In between we need to build one documentation repository and AFAIR we 
decided on Daisy on the cocoon zone. To me this means that ALL (yes ALL) 
documentation pages need to be moved there, after a reviewing process.

Bruno has helped out here by moving the doc pages from SVN BRANCHE 2.X 
to a separate collection in Daisy. The "only" thing to be done now is 
review these pages and move them to the actual documentation set.
Since then (June 17) some time has passed, so I will figure out what 
changes have been done to the doc pages in SVN since then and 
incorporate them into the Daisy version. I'll assume that updated pages 
are worth keeping, so I'll also move them over to the "current" 
documentation collection in Daisy.

- If you want to help, start by checking pages in the "legacy docs" 
collection in Daisy and move them to the regular collection.
- Stop updating/adding doc pages in SVN.

Once this is done, someone (Ross?, Reinhard?) could extract the 
information and update for the time being.

Bye, Helma
