First off, many thanks for taking a look at these. You help is very much

Absolutely. Given that it is always possible that I missed something in my
testing, I usually add something along the lines of "... If you still see
this issue on the latest stable release please provide a test case and/or
instructions to reproduce from a clean installation.". Sometimes people do
come back with better reports or test cases.

That's great. One of the committers will take a look and commit it or
suggest improvements. Bear with us if it takes a little while.

In terms of what's next, I'd suggest browsing through the bugzilla reports
and picking the ones that look interesting. As always, drop dev@tomcat.a.o
an e-mail if you have any questions.
