Certainly not. But it might help you getting to know Cocoon since you're
likely going to do Cocoon projects in the future, right?

Yeah, and don't expect to get much done at a hackathon.

A serializer is a Cocoon component that converts an XML stream (FO in
this case) to a binary stream (PDF in this case). It's how FOP is
integrated into Cocoon so the Cocooners can generate PDFs. They have a
FOPSerializer for 0.20.5 but now that the API has changed they need a
new one. http://cocoon.apache.org/2.1/userdocs/pdf-serializer.html

Maven is used to build Cocoon 2.2 and I've already tried to write a
FOPSerializer during the last ApacheCon but I spent the whole day just
trying to build Cocoon using Maven, failing in the end.
