I don't say that it is much harder to keep cocoon-dist-samples working 
than making cocoon-webapp working. I just say that I lack the motivation.

The reason for that is that cocoon-webapp is a good example for seeing 
what a development environment for Cocoon 2.2 looks like with Maven poms 
and everything. While cocoon-dist-samples just is a prepackaged 
application. You can't use it for starting new projects or learning 
anything, its just show case the samples, nothing else.

And the samples are the same as in 2.1 so if you want to see them you 
can just point your browser to

Later, when we have released 2.2, a binary sample distribution might be 
worthwhile currently it is, IMO, not. But if someone is motivated, 
please go ahead and fix it. But IIRC, it has never worked correctly.

What IMO would be cool, would be to "blockify" the samples. If we do 
that the "sample app" would only be a POM that would download all the 
needed blocks and create a webapp from them with the deployer. That 
would illustrate what Cocoon 2.2 is about. A fat binary sample app doesn't.
