Thanks for spotting - I created all the release tags and updated the
tagging script. Unfortunately Maven doesn't do this out of the box (see
the 'svn-release-tags.bat' script in the root directory of Cocoon 3).

not released this time because I have to check how to properly
release/distribute Firefox/Firebug plugins.

Not there because it doesn't make much sense to release them because
everything is packed in a war file. In order to explore the webapp
samples, use the samples archetype.

It's not there on purpose because its <modules> section would point to
non-existing projects.

If you want to rebuild the release from its sources, you either have to
build the modules in the right order or you would have to add a root pom

For the next release we could enhance the apache-release profile of the
'cocoon-all' module e.g. by a Groovy script that creates the root POM.

no problem. Since you'll get commit privileges very soon, you can fix it
yourself :-P

I would only want to rebuild the release artifacts either if there is a
serious bug or a formal issue that makes the release 'invalid' regarding
to ASF rules. Otherwise we should just ship alpha-3 asap.

You're welcome, add yourself to the parent pom, otherwise see above.
