He has, but it seems you're not accepting them :-P

But this has _nothing_ to do with being conservative!  The impact of  
upgrading the app server platform site-wide, ie globally in case of a  
multinational, is huge when there are hundreds of apps running on it.  
This does not mean however that those apps individually cannot  
upgrade their cocoon version from 2.1 to 2.2 .

I'ld say we stop argueing about this and use our time more  
constructively to experiment with the retroweaver. I hear it has an  
ant task, integrating it into our build process should be a breeze then.
