>5. Testing your application with tomcat :-) ( this is probably a better

>6. Jasper: making sure the bugs are integrated and the interceptor works

>7. User support/documentation: If you managed to get tomcat3 working, you

>If you are a user of tomcat 3.2 or embed tomcat 3.2 in your applications,
>this is a chance to turn into a contributor and then commiter. 
>The help can range from downloading a milestone and running the provided

>that bother you, just looking at the source code and sending feedback or
>small documentation, testing you favorite web application and making sure
>it'll still work fine. 
>Based on the response I get on this mail during the next few days I'll
