Both of those can be issues.  The SVN one was raised by me in late October
regarding Cocoon's use of Daisy.  The thread was "Re: Official source
content in CMS other than CVS/SVN?" on the infrastructure list.  I might
restart it on site-dev, as per David Crossley's suggestion.

And I came across a more detailed response to me regarding how Cocoon uses

  "The daisy install, as far as I understand it, is simply a way for us
  Cocoon developers to work easily on our XML-based doucmentation from
  a browser, rather than having to check-out, edit XML in "vi", check-
  in, and so on... From there, the documents are rendered using Cocoon/
  Forrest and will become our static web-site, so the pattern is quite
  different from Wikis.

That sounds great.  :-)
