Hi Stéphane ,

When we started this project we looked at Cocoon and didn't find it 
satifactorily to our needs:

- easy, smart, standard integration with portals (portlets) + CMS
- a simple URI space for heterogeneous integration of CMS into a portal 
- not tied any of the older Jakarta projects such as Turbine or Cocoon

Our goal is to develop Graffito portlet applications such as CMS 
browsers, editors, in an open way and provide these portlets to the 
developers in the community who need to develop CMS/portal solutions. We 
found this to be a good area to expand the Apache Portals community.

Also, Christophe and I have been working with this project for a long 
time now. When we started, Lenya did not exist at Apache.

Hope that helps explain what we are doing here and our goal is not to 
split the community at all and we welcome you to discuss this further 
and maybe we can find some common ground
