Subject Re: Where's 4.1.31?

I've said too much on this already, but if you really need 4.1.x and bug 
fixes thereto, then why not take Tomcat 4.1.30 and patch it as necessary 
to address bugs of sufficient concern and deliver that to your 
customer/user base?

That seems like a better solution for all than a 4.1.31 release.
