I don't know on this one.

Yes, it has been branched ("tomcat_40_branch" is for 4.0.x).  The HEAD
branch can be used for new development and features.

Hmm, the todo list doc looks like it got lost in the shuffle ...

Two big areas I'd like to see focus on (and where I and some of my
colleagues will definitely be spending some time) are:

* Major improvements to the JSP page compiler to improve the
  quality and performance of the code it generates, and to make
  the compiler itself more maintainable.  A high level requirements
  doc for my view of what this should include will be circulated soon.

* Implementing a nice administration/configuration interface (as a
  web app), talking to server components through a JMX interface
  (so that Tomcat can be managed by any JMX compliant tool).  Some
  time ago I published some functional requirements for this (in the
  Tomcat documentation, go to "Functional Specs" under "Catalina")
  but it hasn't received much in the way of comment yet.

What would *you* like to see happen?  (And what would *you* like to work
on to make it happen?  :-).
