Hmm. I certainly support the idea, I'd like to join, but it depends on 
time constraints.
I'm planning on introducing Cocoon, Exist and Eclipse in a 'Contentlab' 
I'm setting
up for our university curriculum. I would love to have some Cocoon 
plugins, since
I now have to prepare a workable environment and a Cocoon tutorial myself.

Could you use a reasonably skilled group of student users to test ideas 
and provide
feedback - or do you already have matured ideas on what the tools should 
do? UI?
(, no comments on the quality of its 
layout please).
Depending on the focus, there are groups ranging from 10 students/course 
upto 50.

Some part of the IDE could make a nice student project, but I do not 
think all folks
would have the required Java development skills to pick it up quickly. 
Maybe our
computer science students (different programme) could provide these 
skills. Let me
know what you think, maybe I can work something out here.
