Subject Re: replacing geronimo's servlet, jsp, and el specs
Date Wed, 23 May 2007 19:30:22 GMT
I'll run the signature tests on the servlet, jsp, and el spec jars.   
If I encounter any problems then I'll work with tomcat to get them  
fixed before replacing geronimo's versions.

I'll also report the problem you found with annotations-api.jar,  
thanks for pointing that out.

Best wishes,
