A better description is that their committer list is a direct subset
of the Tomcat list, and they exist primarily for use by the Tomcat
community.

Mark Thomas (I think, sorry if it wasn't Mark) explained Watchdog as
existing for Tomcat 4 and being dead because Tomcat 5 no longer needed
it (or some such). This seems like a pretty clear ownership by Tomcat.

The ServletAPI modules were (I assume) created for use by Tomcat.
Unless we start a project at Apache for hosting JCP spec jars, it
seems that a part of the Tomcat community would be the ones writing
the servletapi-3.0.jar in 2 years time; so servletapi also seems like
it's owned by the Tomcat community.

Going a bit further out; I think it would be fair to say that the
Tomcat community are the inheritors of the mod_jserv stuff; but as the
last published cvs location for this no longer works, there's nothing
concrete to hand off. Just vague ownership of something archived
somewhere.
