I'd create a bugzilla entry and attach them to that. I'd also provide a 
separate patch for each package so they are easier to review / apply. Be 
aware that the 2.5 Servlet spec doesn't use generics so there are a fair 
few things you can't change.

 From what I recall, most of the generics work has been done on trunk 
rather than 6.0.x so you should look at creating patches for that rather 
than 6.0.x.

Finally, if you want to contribute then as well as the generics work 
there is also helping out on the users list, improving the docs and 
fixing bugs. Any help in these areas would also be appreciated.
