That's "bribing" the boss (but for real, how can he _really_ commit code
from under 6 feet of snow stranded on the east coast and with basically no
email access), Craig, one day you'll have to share the secret...

I strongly agree with you... Just to make the long story short, it's true,
tomcat 4.0 seems to be a "Sun" corporate project... Indeed at Sun there is a
plan for it (TC4.0 is in J2EE 1.3), but most of us working in the team were
there _before_ we were even working there... Catalina, so far, started years
ago when Craig was working on Jserv 2.0, and was working somewhere else,
regarding me and Remy, well, we have a different story, but most of us were
not at Sun when TC4.0 started... And we were already somehow "involved" in
it. I believe we were just lucky to find a company willing to pay us to
maintain our current involvement in the open source community "for real"...
It would be like saying that Apache 2.0 is a "Covalent" project... C'mon
guys... :) :) :)
