Subject New Contributor Introduction & Initial Proposal for Contribution
Date Fri, 12 Oct 2007 18:59:45 GMT
Fellow Developers,

I am new to this group, and I wanted to take a moment to introduce myself. I
have been a Java developer since 2001, and an open source advocate since the
mid-90s. It would be an honor to volunteer a part of my time to work on
several Apache projects which I have found to be vital to my career.
Therefore, today, 10/12/2007, I faxed my signed Contributor License
Agreement to the Apache Software Foundation.

I will be continuing my adventure through the "New Contributor" sections of
the Apache site, and would like to get acquainted with contributing to the
Tomcat project, first and foremost. I humbly request any help that any of
you may be able to provide, and I ask that you to bear with me while I
attempt to get my feet wet here.

With that being said, I eagerly checked-out the source code and followed the
BUILDING.txt file's instructions. Unfortunately, my build is failing due to
dependency issues. Therefore, at first glance, I realized that one of the
first things that I would love to contribute is the full Mavenization (M10N)
of the Tomcat build process. Please let me know if this is already in
discussion. If it is not, please let me know how I may proceed.

I look forward to working with all of you.

Paul Shemansky
