Subject: [VOTE] Release the HEAD of j-t as Tomcat 3.3.2

> The (modified) text of the proposal is below.  The [VOTE] runs until

> [X] +1 I agree with this release and will support it.
> [ ] +0 I agree with this release, but can't support it.
> [ ] -0  I disagree with this release, but won't block it.
> [ ] -1  I don't think this release should happen because:

> Time Line:
>   If the [VOTE] passes with 3 PMC +1s and no -1s and the enhancements

> Packaging Changes:

> Connectors for people that can't use Java2.
> Code Changes:
> 1)  I'd like to add a blocking option to o.a.t.startup.Main (e.g.

> 2)  Add fix for Bug #8643 (allow to specify alternate module.xml files)
> 3)  Port the requestURI encoding fixes for TC 4/5 (although, I believe
> this is on DecodeInterceptor, instead of the Connector).
> 4)  Update license to Apache-2.0 (non-negotiable, with a March release
