I have no problems with 2.0.1. What specifically doesn't work.

The cocoon-deployer and cocoon-plugins must be disabled in the top level 
POM, if you refer to the problem that have been discussed earlier in 
this thread.

The Apache local Maven repositories doesn't work that well, and 
generates intermitent cannot connect errors, IIRC. The solutions for 
this is:

1. Help moving artifacts that we use from the Apache repository to the 
much better and mirrored ibiblio repository, see
2. Reduce the use of snapshot POMs. If you start building all of Cocoon 
from top level rather than from a specific block, you will use your own 
snapshots of the needed block instead of those from the snapshot 
repository. Especially if you change the top level POM or several blocks 
at once, this might be needed as the snapshot in the repository doesn't 
contain your latest changes (not completely sure about what policy maven 
has for downloading snapshots from the networked repositories rather 
than from your local).
3. Joining the infrastructure group and work for making the snapshot 
repository more stable ;)
