Yes, with a 2.1 release, since I recall there had been a couple of changes.

In 2002 I started exactly in this project with documentation. The initial purpose of cocoon
was to generate consistence documentation for meaning to write some cocoon
docs (esp. c3) be sure you pop onto our watch list.

c3 is really missing helping hands. I would love to get some cocoon veterans reactivated again
especially for the OSGI re-factoring that we need to do in the future.  This project is as
old as the ASF itself and we have a long list of prime ASF member contributing to this project.
However I understand that we all only have very limited time.

...but for everyone that is reading this and like the idea of cocoon please help with

- constructive discussions and giving the helping hand on the ml
- documentation
- testing and bug fixing
- integrating c3 in your project

PS thanks Francesco for starting this and it had been a pleasure to meet you in person.
