Maybe if it were RELEASED....

From the cocoon.apache.org homepage:

  Apache Cocoon 3
    Corona was accepted by the Cocoon PMC to become Apache Cocoon
    3. The Cocoon 3 website has more details. A first ALPHA release
    will follow soon. [more]

[That is the LATEST entry in the News section.]

  Download the latest version:  Apache Cocoon Version 2.2.0

Some documentation that tells us a little more than "TBD" would also
help promote Cocoon.

I have what I think is still the latest book on Cocoon.  It's from
2003.  IIRC 2.1 entered beta while the book was being completed.  It
has a whole chapter about Avalon, which you can hardly even find
anymore.  It's still a godsend if you want to find out how Cocoon was
meant to be used.

For everyone outside the project, 2.2 hasn't quite finished happening
yet and 3.0 is just a wild rumor.  People who built their products
around Cocoon feel abandoned.  Nothing is happening.  Bug reports seem
to be immortal -- even the ones with fixes attached.

Gee, why would Cocoon be losing its user base?
