Since I began working on the Servlet/JSP TCK and Watchdog, I've pushed
what tests that didn't already exist in the Watchdog tree to the point
where, from a test source only perspective, the two trees are for the
most part the same.  However, since Watchdog doesn't have a typical TCK
license, compatibility rules, etc, it cannot be termed as an "official" 

Hope this makes a bit more sense.

The official TCK is available through our partner site.  Apache will
have access to the TCKs through a member designated by the licensing 
agreement.  As to who will run the TCKs, I couldn't tell you.
