That's a good idea.

I tried ~2 weeks ago and failed.  Caching issues it seemed:

There is also a bug where Cocoon doesn't quit cleanly due to a rogue
thread:

http://nagoya.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=18131

On the positive side, it sounds like Carsten has just fixed the
cocoon.xconf reload bug.

If you look in etc/cocoon_upgrade/, there's a diff containing changes
needed for the new cli.xconf, plus the generateKey -> getKey() code
change.  There's a shell script which will attempt to upgrade the jars
too.

I don't think upgrading Cocoon is particularly urgent.  It depends on
this equation:

Net gain = bugs fixed - bugs introduced - upgrade cost


Libre stuff addressed in a separate email..
