That is one of the very important roles of committers within Apache. We 
should be ensuring that we do not duplicate effort between projects and 
therefore we should, as you say, have people in both projects.

You may be interested to know that many of the devs on this list are 
also subscribed to the Cocoon lists (and other related Apache projects, 
such as Lenya). Some are just watching, some are active.

We are all volunteers. We all have our own private reasons for being 
here and giving our time voluntarily. You will often see people talk of 
itches, they may say something like "it's your itch, go scrathc it" 
meaning you cannot expect someone else to do the job, if you think it is 
important then just go and do it.

We *do* need more people working on cross pollintation between Cocoon 
and Forrest. We also need more people working on fixing the bugs in 
Jira, we need more people working on the docs, we need more people 
supporting our users, we need more people testing, we need more people - 
full stop

If you can help, please do (I recognise the fact that you are looking 
for ways to help, keep it up)
