Subject [ANN] Cocoon Documentation Wiki

(copied from, I assume most of the
cocoon-dev'ers have already seen CocoDocoWiki being mentioned in
cocoon-docs or in the associated thread)

Hi all,

due to some very pleasant circumstances, a new and non-empty Cocoon Wiki
is now hosted at Most of its current
content has been donated by Leigh Dodds of and eclectic fame,
but as Wikis go, they should be taken care after by a community.

So if everybody who has been complaining about the difficulties doing
doco work using just mailinglists and CVS patches adds a page to our
Cocoon Documentation Wiki, I'll soon have to buy another server ;-)

I don't have an official name yet for it, and Cocoon Documentation Wiki
is kind of long, so how about CocoDocoWiki? It sure fits the typical 
nonsensical naming conventions from WikiWikiWorld.

Politically incorrect, this Wiki is powered by JSPWiki
( Its pages however are stored in plain
text (WikiMarkup) files, and we will unvestigate how we can easily 
migrate documentation from WikiML to Apache/Forrest xdoc format.

<warning>CocoDocoWiki is primarily destined towards potential 
documentation contributors, Cocoon users and developers alike, as some 
kind of breeding pool where documentation can grow until it is mature 
enough to be migrated to the official Cocoon Documentation. CocoDocoWiki 
is *not* a replacement nor a competitor for the Cocoon Documentation 

<license>Documentation submitted to CocoDocoWiki *can* be migrated to 
the official documentation by a Cocoon community member/committer 
afterwards, relicensing the information using the Apache License. Be 
aware of this if you intend to write a book or an article and your 
publisher doesn't like this.</license>

<caveat>While this initiative is hosted/sponsored by Outerthought, we 
reserve no rights on your contributions.</caveat>

Have fun,
