1.2.3 and trunk require 2.1.7

i'd think cocoon 2.2 would work too after we take the new cocoon.xconf 
format (with includes) into account in the build process. also, there 
might be some minor flowscript issues to work out, but otherwise i'd 
expect it to work.

we discussed whether to move trunk to cocoon trunk, but decided not to 
do so for now. there were some noises on the cocoon list recently about 
getting a 2.2 release out soon, which would help.

from what i understand, forrest has a superior concept of 'resource 
types' (plugins in forrest lingo), pluggable sitemap components to 
handle rendering of new sorts of content.

lenya has a superior concept for bundling functionality (java, etc) with 
the usecase framework.

didn't you want to work on integrating forrest plugins into lenya?

that's a funny question :)

afaik forrest has no workflow, user management etc, so if you need 
those, the answer would be pretty clear.

definitely do this on 1.4, since 1.2 does not have the usecase framework
