Subject Re: [draft] SD Magazine: request for change

Good note.

It surprises me you don't want to mention the branding issue ("Apache 
Tomcat" vs "Tomcat").  I'd think that'd be a point that a publication and 
commercial enterprise like SD Magazine would understand well and be 
completely sympathetic to.

It's entirely possible the SD magazine intended to honor both the product 
(Apache Tomcat) and the JBoss organization.  Whether they should link the 
two is subject to debate.  But the fact that the product should be "Apache 
Tomcat 5.0" not "Tomcat 5.0" is inarguable.

regards,
WILL
