Sorry for the late reply.

Yes, if possible then Apache Forrest would like to continue.

Forrest is a consumer of many other projects.
Our gump metadata have been configured to utilise our local
copy of some of those. For others we use the gump-built one.

Gump has a special copy of Cocoon-2.1 but we could change to
use the abovementioned approach.

So Forrest could re-jig ours to use the up-to-the-minute
version of whatever Gump does provide, and then use our
local copies for the rest.
