+1 for release.

- KEYS and RELEASE-NOTES files are missing in top level directory
   They had been put there for previous 5.5 releases.

- MD5 OK
- signatures OK
- gz and zip for src and bin consistent
- src mostly consistent with svn tag
- builds fine
- build result looks consistent with binaries
- No errors in run-tester, even the four previously
   FAILED tests are OK now.
- JMX MBeans only expected change is the new
   maxHeaderCount with value 100 in HTTP protocol handler, so looks OK

Build was done using Java 1.4.2_19, OS was Solaris 10 Sparc.

- Minor things:

   - STATUS.txt in svn, but not in src tar and zip
     (I guess that's expected)

   - Some javadoc warnings (but no regression from 5.5.35),
     TC 5.5 was never 100% clean for javadoc (details see below)

Details for Javadoc:

warning - Tag @link: can't find getTokenEndPosition(byte[], int, int, 
boolean) in org.apache.tomcat.util.http.Cookies


and 344: warning - End Delimiter } missing for possible See Tag in 
comment string: "If the forward to the login page fails and the call

warning - Tag @link: reference not found: Globals.DISPATCHER_TYPE_ATTR

warning - @param argument "session" is not a parameter name.
