Subject cvs commit: jakarta-tomcat/apps README

  Added:       modules  README
               apps     README
  Added the top-level directories for the contributed modules and
  apps that will not be included in the release ( either because
  they are not ready or as a choice to keep the release focused).
  This will allow us to check in the new adminUI and the digested auth.
  Modules here should be considered "revolution"-like, and are not part
  of the release ( or optional/ in ant terms ).
  The main goals are to avoid featurism in the released tomcat, while
  allowing people to add the functionality they need ( without impacting
  the release cycle )
  Revision  Changes    Path
  1.1                  jakarta-tomcat/modules/README
  Index: README
  This directory is for various modules that are not part of the 
  normal tomcat release.
  The goal is to keep the tomcat release as small and focused as
  possible, and include only the stable modules, but still allow
  users to add or try other modules..
  - different authentication schemes ( the "digested" auth, LDAP, etc )
  - different loggers ( log4j, etc )
  - session persistence
  - ajp14
  - etc.
  Each module can be build independently, and will act as an add-on
  for the stable release of tomcat. Tomcat can remain focused to a 
  strict and minimal implementation of the API, and all specialized
  modules can be developed without impacting the release cycle.
  Note: some of the existing modules in tomcat fit in this category.
  We can move them here only with a vote on tomcat-dev, since they
  were part of previous releases.
  1.1                  jakarta-tomcat/apps/README
  Index: README
  Various applications that are not required for normal
  tomcat functionality, but provide additional support.
  The new contributed admin pages, and new apps ( like config or
  monitoring ) should be developed here, independent of
  the main tomcat release. When the app is stable and 
  have the same quality with the rest of tomcat we can 
  vote to include it in the stable release, but as 
  the development is active the apps can be built and 
  released separately.
