Subject RE: Servlet and JSP APIs in java repository

Yoav,

I did a quick check of servlet-api.jar in Tomcat 5.5.9.  In its
MANIFEST.MF, the "Implementation-Version" says "2.4.public_draft".
Looks like the "implementation.revision" property in the build.xml
files for both jsr152 and jsr154 still say "public_draft".
