  Added:       proposals/catalina STATUS.html
  Log:
  Initial version of the TODO list for Catalina.  Feel free to suggest
  additions, deletions, and modifications.
  
  Andy, this doesn't have any of the specifics that you might want for non
  HTTP support, other than completion of the basic refactoring.

  <div align="center"><h1>Action Items List for Catalina</h1></div>
  
  <p>This document is a living list of the action items related to the
  current development of the Catalina architecture for the
  Tomcat servlet container.  Catalina is being designed and built to serve
  as a replacement for the core servlet execution environment currently present
  in Tomcat 3.x, and is targeted to become functional in time for a Tomcat 4.0
  release.  All of the source code for the Catalina architecture is currently
  in a subdirectory named <code>proposals/catalina</code> in the
  <code>jakarta-tomcat</code> subproject.
  
  <p>The columns in this report contain the following information:
  <ul>
  <li><b>Priority</b> - A sense of how important the Tomcat development
      community feels it is to address this issue in the short term.</li>
  <li><b>Action Item</b> - Concise description of the action item
      to be completed.  Where relevant, Java package names of the
      primary classes involved are listed in [square brackets]</li>
  <li><b>Volunteers</b> - Names and EMAIL addresses of those developers
who
      have volunteered to assist in the design, implementation, testing, and
      documentation of this action item's changes to Tomcat.</li>
  </ul>
  
  <p>Additions to, subtractions from, and changes to the action items listed
  here should be discussed and approved on the TOMCAT-DEV mailing list, as
  described on the
  <a href="http://jakarta.apache.org/guidelines/decisions.html">Decision
  Making</a> page on the Jakarta Project web site.  Developers can nominate
  themselves to work on particular action items by asking a Committer to add
  their name and EMAIL address to those items.  The developers working on each
  item should discuss and agree upon the approach to be used for implementing
  the item's changes to the project source code and documentation, prior to
  completing those changes.  Such discussions should take place on the
  TOMCAT-DEV mailing list so that everyone can stay apprised of what is going
  on, or chime in if they want to contribute ideas and suggestions.
  
  <p>For convenience, the action items have been organized into general
  categories, which are presented in alphabetical order.  The following
  categories of actions are currently identified:
  <ul>
  <li><a href="#Architecture">Architecture</a> of the overall server
  <li><a href="#Connectors">Connectors</a> to web servers and HTTP clients
  <li><a href="#Core">Core</a> servlet engine functionality
  <li><a href="#Server">Server Administration</a> functionality
  <li><a href="#Servlet">Servlet</a> provided functionality
  <li><a href="#Session">Session Management</a> functionality
  <li><a href="#Utility">Utility</a> component functionality
  <li><a href="#Valve">Valve</a> provided functionality
  </ul>
