Subject Re: [4.1.x] Next release
Date Thu, 03 Apr 2003 02:34:48 GMT
+1 for the next 4.1 release to include only bug fixes.

A quick query of bugzilla found 744 bugs for Tomcat 4 which are not
either closed or resolved.


Perhaps we should set a goal for how much this number should be
reduced before doing the release.

Some of these are quite old and perhaps only need to be checked
to see if they are still valid.

Some are for mod_webapp.  Since there is no volunteer to maintain
this and we have removed it from the distribution, these could
probably be closed as WONT FIX.
