Hi Henning,

In fact the jars we had in our struts2-ext 1.0.3 release candidate were taken from Tomcat
5.5. The manifest says:

	Manifest-Version: 1.0
	Ant-Version: Apache Ant 1.6.5
	Created-By: 1.4.2_11-b06 (Sun Microsystems Inc.)

	Name: javax/servlet/
	Specification-Title: Java API for Servlets
	Specification-Version: 2.4
	Specification-Vendor: Sun Microsystems, Inc.
	Implementation-Title: javax.servlet
	Implementation-Version: 2.4.public_draft
	Implementation-Vendor: Apache Software Foundation

Thomas investigated this and said it was not permitted to distribute those. This was the main
reason why he rejected the release.
Martijn agreed with that too.

@Thomas: since Tomcat is distributing them, why can't we?
