Thanks for the report. The issue has been fixed.

I can't speak for Remy but private messages to developers tend to get 
ignored. The rule for Tomcat - as it is for all ASF projects - is if it 
didn't happen on the mailing list then it never happened. Issues should 
not be raised directly with individual committers but with the community 
as a whole either directly on the dev list or better still as a Bugzilla

Huh? I have no idea what you are referring to here. Tomcat's EL 
implementation is - and always has been - ALv2 licensed.
