IMO none of the issues is blocking a release, especially not an alpha 
release. We should set a date (e.g. April, 25th) and freeze the codebase 
for the alpha-3 release.

All code that is committed by then is part of the release, everything 
else has to wait for beta-1.

WDYT?

BTW, does somebody else want to take the role of the release manager? I 
wrote a summary at 
https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/cocoon/cocoon3/trunk/RELEASE_HOWTO.txt 
that explains all necessary steps. Thanks to Maven it shouldn't be too 
hard ...
