Dieter, we definitely need help with Cocoon issues.
Please discuss stuff like that on the Forrest dev list.
We have a number of Cocoon issues listed on our issue
tracker. Our out-of-date Cocoon version is holding us back.

Uwe, please also talk about potential packaging on our Forrest
dev list. We need to be careful, as Forrest is large and complex,
and half-baked packaging could do damage for the project.
We have plans to use Ivy to better manage our dependencies
and so packaging would be easier.
