Which sitemap did you browse?  The final sitemap is built
dynamically by the build process.

Is true only if:

1) you are running a servlet engine on port 8080 and
2) you have cocoon mounted as /cocoon

*Neither* of which have to be the case.  How can we document all
cases when most people appear to have problems with their
servlet environment?

it up to date.

xerces (and other dependant jars) change their names *slightly*
very often.  It is often assumed that people can figure out that,
seeing xerces-2.0.2.jar is just a more recient version than the
documented xerces-1.0.2.jar (or whatever the versions are).

Again, it used too. (ps, please don't shout for emphasis :)

You're welcome, but questions (in the form of a patch ;) for
the FAQ and patches to the documentation (you've listed some
above) would help tremendously.
