I believe it is not too dificult:

We try to stick with this as long as posible. But the reality sometimes is
not exactly as you described above. Also in Cocoon, there is the same
policy to use stable "official" releases of the libs. But sometimes we
need to use a CVS (SVN) version because it fix an important issue. As a
sample take the current xalan version we use now in forrest:


here, "20041008T0304" means we use a xalan built from the CVS. The CVS
snapshot was from 2004-10-08 Time 03:04 UTC.

This was done because there was an important bugfix for forrest and this
is the same xalan version shipped currently with cocoon.

If by modules you mean "jars", then see:

Also there is an important dir "cocoon_upgrade" and see the readme:

If the above don't answer the question, then we need to publish more info.
