Hi Gabriel,
I do run actually few Cocoon instances in production, but that's 
3.0.0(-beta-1-SNAPSHOT...). I used to run Cocoon 2.1.X as well.

Unfortunately, I am not very confident with 2.2, but if you would like 
to provide some patches against Spring Configurator [1] or any other 
component to bring them to latest Spring version, I would be happy to 
review and handle your contribution(s).

Please be sure to review our contribution docs[2].
