Subject Re: Should we update version scheme information for tomcat 9?
Date Mon, 19 Sep 2016 14:10:15 GMT
OK, I've read over what I proposed again and it looks correct to me. I
only made one change after you provided further explanation and that
change was to add 'finalized' in the Alpha release description:

+functionality required by the finalised specification and/or significant bugs

I did this to further demarcate Milestone releases from Alpha
releases. If this sounds good to everyone, I'll push it up.

Thanks!
