sadly policy dictates that we can't upload release candidates to ibiblio

i've been at work off list and things look good. i think i'm just about
ready to cut the final release candidate this weekend and try a release
vote.

yep

i agree that it's not logical but ATM it would be good to ship a fixed
replacement. it's likely that tomcat 6 will ship a JCL library created
by costin which is static bound to java.util.logging.

i've got the feedback i wanted now (off list) so i think the time is
right to cut another release candidate and hold a release vote next
week. i'll probably give the vote two weeks this time.
