Certainly your prerogative. I don't care for bugzilla, either...

As I have acknowledged, the validity of the POST Request is  
debatable. However, there is only a "memo" on which you are basing  
your classification. Tomcat's behavior should be governed by the RFC  
2616 specification. Tomcat's response is not compliant with RFC 2616  
and you have offered no reasons why Tomcat should not be compliant  
with the specification. I've also demonstrated that Tomcat's behavior  
for bodiless HTTP 1.1 POST Requests is terrible (Tomcat will still  
attempt to read a message body and will not send a Response until the  
Socket Read times out).

Given my thoughts on the matter, I think it is appropriate for the  
Tomcat community to act on the bug report as they see fit...

5.5.15, then. I see that TC Clustering support is broken in 5.5.14,  
anyway... I won't comment on challenging/not challenging the test.
