I have access to the Servlet and JSP TCKs (current versions 2.4 and
2.0 respectively, but once the 2.5 and 2.1 are available, those as

"We" loosely defined as current Tomcat committers, already do.  You
need to send Geir Magnusson <> (in his capacity as the
Apache JCP coordinator) an email saying you want access to the TCKs

No objection, I don't think, but uncertainty as to which modules to
combine and into what SVN structure.
