The will have to, all hope and prayers should cast a spell on Maven 
repositories to be more stable. ;)
Side-note: I really do not experience all problems with Maven not being 
able to download this or that. I do not have any spectacular Internet 
connection, also. Maybe tweaking settings.xml [1] really solves the 
problem? I strongly advice to do it.

I encountered the same, not have time to invest this issue this week,

You use out-dated articaftId, proper values are:

There is interesting in-depth report on running C2.2 posted by Gavin

Yes, you are right. Your application is just another Cocoon block based 
on proper Maven's archetype. I think abandoned possibility to "hack away 
at sitemaps and toss in files" is strengths not weakness. Cocoon in 
2.1.x suffered enough not having standard way of building your own apps. 
And you had to learn other tool: Ant.

In short: Ask questions here, hopefully someone will be able to cover 
your doubts.
