The current list of major projects outstanding on Catalina is in the
jakarta-tomcat repository, in a file named "proposals/catalina/STATUS.html".
Some of the items have names beside them already -- there is no problem with
more than one person working in a particular area, as long as collaboration can
occur (over the TOMCAT-DEV mailing list).  I will be happy to add your name to
any of the items listed (or add any new items that we think ought to be there).
Let me know which specific ones you are interested in.
