Subject RE: [5.0] Schedule change
Date Tue, 30 Sep 2003 21:45:49 GMT
I might be off base, but whats the problem with releasing TC 5 under the
banner of supporting a draft spec.

Servlet/JSP Spec	Tomcat version  
2.4/2.0 draft 3 	5.0.14  
2.3/1.2  		4.1.27  
2.2/1.1  		3.3.1a

Subject: [5.0] Schedule change


The signals I'm getting from Sun about the schedule of the 
specifications is highly confusing. Since I'm tired of having Tomcat 
depend on these, I propose taking advantage of the backwards 
compatibility of the spec, and replacing the TC 5 statement phrase with:

The 5.x releases implement the Servlet 2.3 and JSP 1.2 specifications, 
and will add support for the Servlet 2.4 and JSP 2.0 as soon as they are

officially available.

That would allow making a timely 5.0 release, rather than expecting 
stuff for an indefinite amount of time ...

If I don't get yelled at too much, I'll call for a vote on this.

Comments ?
