Subject Re: Process for contributing
Date Tue, 01 Jan 2008 01:10:59 GMT, especially the "How the ASF works" and
"Introduction for contributors" pieces.

In a nutshell:
1. Join this mailing list, post ideas / comments / whatever.
2. Put your contributions (code, docs, whatever) into Bugzilla at, and committers will get them into the codebase as
3. If/when the other committers think you've contributed a lot of good
stuff, you'll get voted a committer yourself.

That's it.  Many other open-source projects work this way.  This is
not new, nor unique to Tomcat.
