Thanks for your patience as I try to wrap my head around the conceptual 
model of Cocoon blocks and Maven artifacts.

To build beta-1-SNAPSHOT artifacts, do I need to first install Cocoon 
beta-1-SNAPSHOT? My guess is, no: Cocoon (beta-1-SNAPSHOT) *is* one of 
the artifacts you can generate. Right?

However, when I run the above "mvn archetype:generate" command, with all 
the -D options, I get the following error:

[ERROR] The goal you specified requires a project to execute but there 
is no POM
  in this directory (C:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation). 
Please verify
you invoked Maven from the correct directory. -> [Help 1]

So generating a Cocoon block artifact requires a project / POM... what 
project is that POM supposed to come from?

Or instead of using

    mvn archetype:generate

should I use

   mvn org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-archetype-plugin:1.0-alpha-7:create

I tried that, and got this error:

[ERROR] Failed to execute goal 
.0-alpha-7:create (default-cli) on project standalone-pom: Error 
creating from a
rchetype: Archetype does not exist. Requested download does not exist. 
Could not
  find artifact 

Unfortunately I'm stumbling in the dark.

Thanks for any help...
