Regarding servlets, the JSR-154 Spec Lead did not inform us yet of any
deadline... I know that Sun wants to have it out "soonish", but there are
still quite few bits and bobs to sort out (like friggin' schema).

If you have questions regarding JSR-154 (requirements/info/...) contact me
as I'm still the official representative for the ASF on the JCP expert

Have fun...
