Subject Re: Question about sample site in trunk

Maybe we are on the same page, but I'm unclear what you mean by 
"include".  A cocoon release should consist of nothing more than 
deploying artifacts to the maven repository. End users should be getting 
the release by specifying the version number of the release in the 
archetypeVersion. To create the sample site they should do:

mvn archetype:create -DarchetypeGroupId=org.apache.cocoon 
-DarchetypeArtifactId=cocoon-archetype-samples -DarchetypeVersion=1.0.0 
-DgroupId=com.mycompany -DartifactId=samples
mvn install
mvn jetty:run

IIRC the source can also be placed in the maven repository, so if they 
want to see what the source for samples look like we should be able to 
provide something that will retrieve them.

Even if we can't do this, there are 2 things I do not want to see. 1) 
End users have to download all the source for Cocoon or 2) End users 
have to individually download a bunch of zips to get the source for all 
the various sample blocks.
