Kirk,

Welcome to Tomcat!

I am afraid Bugzilla is the best todo list we have.

Take a look at the following bugs. They shouldn't be too hard and if you
get stuck just shout. Don't be surprised if some of these have been fixed
in the latest 5.5.x & 6.0.x release - just close the bug report with a note
of the version you tested.

https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=38570
https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=38726
https://issues.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=39013

These are all 5.5.x bugs. Generally, I'd suggest testing in the following
order:
- trunk
- 6.0.x
- 5.5.x

Provide a patch for the first one that is broken and check that it can be
easily ported to the remaining versions. If the port to a branch isn't
simple, provide a patch specifically for that branch.

Patches (in diff -u format) should be attached to bugzilla.

If you need help, ask a question on the dev list.

Cheers,

Mark
