Yes - I noticed the Apache Watchdog project heritage. Couldn't help but
laugh that Sun are charging for the same tests now (for commercial
vendors anyway) ...

The main thing I wanted to offer was to help with running it before
releases (which I think is part of the contract), and my understanding
is that only the individuals within the project that sign their lives
away to Sun are allowed access to the TCK, which I would guess isn't
everyone on the tomcat-dev team.

OK - no problem. Is it okay to post the results of TCK tests publicly
though ? I thought that wasn't allowed by the contract. I guess it
should be okay if I just publish the test groups and indexes that fail.

The tests that failed were:

jsp/api/javax_servlet/jsp/pagecontext: tests 15,28,30
jsp/api/javax_servlet/jsp/tagext/simpletagsupport: test 7
jsp/spec/core_syntax/actions/invoke: test 7
jsp/spec/core_syntax/implicitobjects: test 3
jsp/spec/tagfiles/semantics: tests 1,2,3,4

Note this is 5.5.9, so possibly already fixed.
