I know - now is the time to fix this :-)

Code changes to jakarta-servletapi are still 'special' - since it must 
be an exact copy of the spec. But I see no reason for watchdog - it was 
supposed to be the semi-official test suite, but now Sun provides an 
official one, so watchdog is useless anyway.

But both should go with tomcat - since the servlet API implementation is 
part of tomcat charter ( and I assume it will be removed from jakarta 
charter :-)

Maybe someone should check with Sun - if they have any concerns.

I think the avail should be consistent in the new TLP - i.e. all tomcat 
committers have access to all tomcat modules.
