Subject Code cosmetics (was: [GUMP] Build Failure - xml-forrest)
Date Tue, 15 Apr 2003 12:57:01 GMT
Hi there,

this sounds like a bit of an upcoming issue
for a rather cosmetic change:
(thx to Steven for helping me see the wonders of viewcvs)

I would not like to just add the upcoming method as well and 
delegate to the old one since then we will just shut up gump and 
will loose his alarming function reminding us that we still have 
to remove the old signatures some time in future, right?

So upgrading to cocoon-head once again seems appropriate, I'm 
getting into gear for doing the job, was just asking a number of 

I know I have been somewhat of this list lately, but your short 
answers can help me get the most of the effort I still want to 

0. have any of you tried recently and are there issues?
1. do we have some minor standard procedure on how to build 
cocoon for forrest and test it? (or is there nothing specific to it)

2. how urgent do you guys feel this is?
   - I'ld like to clean up the depricate warnings as well, and it 
somewhat calls for a new version of the ComposerGenerator base 
class over at cocoon (will investigate that part of the cocoon 
branch to start a thread over there )

3. Vaguely related: part of the code in scratchpad putting this 
on the agenda is the Libre stuff, since we have the site.xml 
there seems to be a number of new reasons to revive this thing 
(generation of that file for larger sites seems like a quick win?)

But maybe that usage would rather push it into an Ant Task then a 
Cocoon Generator?

Not to mention the fact that "we should ditch this code if there 
is no usage for it" (and better do that before people think I've 
parked it over here for you to maintain)

So bluntly: Do we see usage? If yes, please elaborate and let's 
get to it, I'ld like to get in do-mode 'round this.
