Of course we have, because we actually own the Intellectual Property.
You are forgetting that we have PMC (Project Management Committee),
that is responsible to deal with all administrative stuff :)

So, why would anyone even spend a single microsecond to look at
the patch if *you* could not guarantee that the patch is
compliant with the specs?

Tomcat is very mature project, and lots of users are depending
on it's stability. Considering a patch that it's own author
considers as 'maybe' would lead us to nowhere.

I applaud to your willing to contribute, but if you wish to
do that, and eventually become a member of the elite, you must
follow some rules, and the first one, like in any company is to
respect your colleagues.
