Neither do I.

It is not only that but also a whole bunch of new problems could be
introduced. Right now, all users of a particular Forrest revision use
the same Cocoon version. That makes it easier to track down problems and
I think of it as one of the main features of Forrest. Users and
developers don't have to worry about checking out and building the
correct revision of Cocoon to build Forrest. They just check out and
build Forrest and it works. Updating Forrest also only involves invoking
"svn up" and "./". You don't have to check after every update
whether you also have to update Cocoon.

I really like Lenya. It is a great project. However, the one thing I
*don't* like about Lenya is having to download both Lenya and Cocoon and
build them just to have a working basis. I think they should also bundle
Cocoon :-)

I am not a Forrest committer, so it is easy for me to say "+1" here. But
even if I was, I would still be "+1" :-)
