Subject 5.5.24?
Date Wed, 30 May 2007 12:23:05 GMT
Doing a quick scan, it looks like a good number of small fixes to 5.5.23 
have accumulated over the last number of months.  [See]

I know the Tomcat developers are largely focused on 6.0 now, but is 
there any chance of a 5.5.24 being rolled to wrap up this backlog.

There are a few spec violations in this batch (e.g. 41869) plus the 
embarrassing missing MailSessionFactory.

Overall it would seem good to roll these all up one of these days -- 
especially given that the number of bugs fixes per month seems to be 
dropping off -- and thus one could argue that 5.5.24 may stand "as is" 
for a long time.  There are a good number of open bugs against 5.5.x, 
but few serious ones seem to: (1) not be in a NEEDINFO state and (2) be 
in another area than the native connector (which is separately versioned 
and optional).
