Maybe you are right for the location.

You missed my point though.

Say we have the image in xxx/images/*.jpg  , and I tell the sitemap to match
**images/*.jpg to that .

If I put <img src="images/myimage.jpg"> in a document in the YYY/ dir,  I
will have the image copied by CLI in YYY/images/myimage.jpg.

If I also put <img src="images/myimage.jpg">  in a document in the ZZZ/ dir,
I will have the image copied by CLI again in ZZZ/images/myimage.jpg.

I have the same image being copied by the CLI in two different dirs.

How can we make Cocoon reference only one copy?
