Don't worry. Everything is ok. I think Vadim solution is great is the 
best scape pod we can get. :)


"get 2.1.10 out, close 2.1.x branch, and work on getting 2.2 out - i'm 
completely +1 on this line of thinking. Why do we need to keep on 
dragging 2.1.x branch forward? Just say that 2.1.10 is last on jdk 1.3 
(and last of 2.1.x), and 2.2 forward requires jdk 1.4. "

Also given the current status, I am wondering if we should reconsider 
java 1.4 as the minimum for cocoon 2.2. We should keep in mind java 1.6 
is out, hence if we agree to have java 1.4 as minimum we will have to 
support it for the next 2 years or so (based on the current release 
time). Thinking in 2 years for now. I wonder who will still be using 
java 1.4 and hence we will met the same issue as today, isn't?

Best Regards,

Antonio Gallardo.
