The options for incorporating new features are:

a) Back-port them to one or more of the current stable release
branches (newest version first)
b) Include them in trunk for the next major release
c) Back-port them to the extras package of one or more of the current
d) Include them in the extras package for the next major release
stable release branches (newest version first)
e) hosted at www.apacheextras.org (or for small amounts of code on the
Tomcat wiki)

Factors that tend to push the likely destination away from a) and
towards e) are:
- features that require large amounts of new code are more likely to
end up at e)
- features that introduce new dependencies are more likely to end up at e)
- features that do not appear to appeal to the majority of Tomcat
users are more likely to end up at e)

Where the best place for a new feature is will always be subjective so
there are no hard and fast rules but hopefully this will give folks an
idea of where a proposed new feature is likely to end up.
