Subject Re: Giving up! Cocoon too big, slow and confusing

Dear List,
This thread was false from the beginning. You just have to look at the 
subject to expose the authors real intension - a simple reckoning - and 
he even gives us the reason of his frustration: the end of his

and he puts the blame on cocoon, which is certainly much younger, and 
full of vigour...

sorry, but this is poor, like most reactions that followed.
The defeatist subject line obviously attracted and encouraged others to 
take the pressure off themselves.

The spurious argument: Lack of documentation. This is not really new to 
someone who has read the documentation, because even there it is an 
issue. But for being more comprehensive the following issues are not 
really new either:

- Developers are saying contribute but mean fuck you.
- The Cathedral and the Bazaar
- Attacking $cocoon-book authors
- Defending $cocoon-book authors

In contrast to Eric’s prophecy, I hope Nicola's tag line fulfills and 
this needless and awkward discussion gets forgotten soon.
