In response to some Carsten e-mail I said that I was planning to take care of releasing in
September. You were faster with concrete proposal I'm fine that you take care of it and I
would like
to lend my hand if any help is needed.

EL stuff is completely independent from rest of core, it has no dependencies on cocoon modules
there is no problem with releasing it independently.

On the other hand, if you are going to release rest of Cocoon there is no point in releasing
it few
days earlier. ;)

My long-term goal is to stabilize development of EL to such extent that we can switch to the
released dependencies even in Cocoon's core.

I've taking a look on this issue when working on GSoC and moving stuff around. Basically we

  * code that can be moved immediately because there is no problem with dependencies

  * code that has some very complicated dependencies like CocoonSourceResolver

  * code that itself does not have any problems with dependencies but its tests depend on
code from
cocoon-core like CocoonTestCase. We can get rid of CocoonTestCase reliably only switching
Avalon to Spring so our components become beans thus much more test-friendly.

We could think about spending some time on it at Hackathon, WDYT?
