As one of the initiators of the current Daisy documentation route, I am 
feeling the same pain. My current use of Cocoon is 0% although I can't 
get myself to unsubscribe from the lists. ;-)
The current pace of development is too quick to help out in 
documentation if you're not heavily involved in the project.

My initial ideas about this setup was that it's fairly easy and quick to 
open up a page in Daisy and start adding documentation. That way the 
chances of actually adding documentation increase. Anything that takes a 
lot of time will spoil the chance of actual writing.
Don't think that each page in Daisy should immediately be added to the 
general site, but use the update frequency to let it simmer and improve 
the quality.

Bye, Helma
