I would have no problem if all jakarta commiters would have the right
to vote on tomcat. I would be happy to propose any jakarta commiter who
is interested in contribution or voting on tomcat as a tomcat commiter.
And I will +1 any other jakarta commiter that is proposed as a tomcat
commiter. Including Peter :-)

BTW, using code from another jakarta project is the same as
trusting the commiters of that project.

Tomcat is using commons code, so we do seem to trust the commons
community. The fact that a lot of tomcat commiters can vote
on all commons component that they use seems to make us very
comfortable with using commons and  migrating code from
tomcat that is of common interest into commons.

The same doesn't seem to happen with Avalon - and I don't know
why, but that's not our problem but Avalon's problem. It may
have the goal to create 'server side components', but tomcat
as a server doesn't seem to use any. And it may have the goal
of creating 'components', but so far it seems many people
prefer commons for that.
