Subject: RE: Tomcat 5.0.28 release

I have a couple of only-slightly-related comments, but related
nonetheless so I'll put them here.

Re: endorsed directories.  Do we still want to support JDK 1.3 in Tomcat
5.1?  Since we're gearing up for JDK 1.5, we might want to make 1.4 the
minimum.  I'm +0.5 on this.

Ahh -- that's good.  Please make sure to note them as such when you
report them.  It will raise their importance significantly.

How about stopping support for that scenario?  I mean drop the
CATALINA_BASE versus CATALINA_HOME feature, (or set them to always equal
each other, if we want to leave them in the code base), and don't allow
users to share installations except by the user home directory valve.
The disk space benefits aren't worth it.  The central administration
benefits might be, but I wonder how many people use this.  Maybe an
informal survey on the user list is worth doing?

The rest of what you said, I agree with.
