my entire mail was written with the assumption this new module would not 
only be containing Cocoon docs, but also other projects docs - an idea 
which I don't particularly like due to the abysmal state of xml-site 
which is such a 'shared module'

ownership of docs should reside in the hands of per-project appointed 
code/docs committers, not centralized in some module

if my assumption is wrong (apparently) - sorry about it - I'm bad with 
assumptions these days... :-(

I know, Diana. We all know. If you prefer to have a separate module for 
cocoon-docs, I can agree with you. I'm not so sure (from a community 
perspective) whether creating subcommunities is efficient, however, but 
that's my personal opinion.

We are actively thinking about some form of forrest.jar/.war/.cent that 
projects depending on Forrest need to include inside their CVS module 
for local builds - it's just that I haven't quite wrapped my brain 
around it - anyone an idea?

Cocoon always will be a special case, I reckon, since most of what 
powers Forrest is born over there :-D

Friends again?
