What JDK are you using?  It seems like you will need a very old JDK for this branch to work.

Hi team,

I recently came again across annoying 2.1 bugs, which I have proposed patches for, and realized that I received almost no answers to my "what's the future of Cocoon 2.1" e-mail, and that my patches have not been reviewed nor committed.
I have found and patched a new one this morning : https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COCOON-2319

As I previously said, I fully understand that current Cocoon committers are focused on Cocoon 3, and that they probably have no great interest to old maintenance releases.
Again, I totally volunteer to help to maintain and release 2.1.x branch, as I have dozens of production applications on top of it, running with a a-lot-patched Cocoon.
Please tell me what I can do to help.

Hi Cedric,
as I wrote in [8], here it follows what I did for building C2.1 trunk (in order to start applying your patches, of course):

1. svn co https://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/cocoon/branches/BRANCH_2_1_X cocoon-2_1_X
2. cp blocks.properties local.blocks.properties
3. set include.all.blocks=true
4. ./build.sh
5. ./build.sh test

resulted in 6 test failures (DefaultRunnableManagerTestCase)

Am I doing something wrong?

Hi Cocoon team,

A little more than one year ago, I sent a mail [1] to this list, to get feedbacks about usage of Cocoon 2.1.x, 3 years after the last release.
I must admit that I received many more answers (privately and publicly on the list) than I could have expected first.
This proved me the vitality of the 2.1.x community.
So I began to open some tickets [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] and provide some patches gathered during the last years on my projects, but unfortunately, I received nearly no feedback from committers around here.
Is there still any interest from devs for the 2.1.x branch ?
Could someone review the patches ? I obviously volunteer to help, to stop having to run dozen apps with a patched Cocoon.
Has someone interest to prepare and schedule a 2.1.12 maintenance release ?
