While I agree that the documentation could be better, I have to comment that
Cocoon, as it is now, is documented far better than a lot of other open
source projects.  The main problem in this area is that Cocoon is powerful
and complicated.  To learn to use it from a programmer's perspective you
have to also understand Avalon - where IMHO the documentation is nowhere
near the level of Cocoon.

However, I think you missed the point of Dr. Martin's post.  Cocoon's
recommended method of building and deploying an application doesn't work for
at least some of us.  The fact that the default sitemap contains the cocoon
sample site means I can never use it.  I'd just like a sitemap that has all
the definitions with no pipeline.  I'd like all the definitions in
cocoon.xconf but then disable those I'm not going to use in my product.
