checking two 1.3.0 jdk's for linux show Perhaps
your classpath is being reset somewhere?

reading this posting:

It would seem that you shouldn't have this problem anymore.  In any case,
you should be able to cut and pase a 2.3 dtd and put it somewhere
friendly (like on your webserver).

On a related note, I'm completely lost with tomcat's cvs.  Could someone
clue me in to which branches are active?  I see like ten branches, and on:

I cannot make heads or tails of it?  I'm looking for something like:

 branch name/ tomcat version/ dependent packages / dependent pacakges versions

This would indeed make things more friendly for people to jump into the
source (at least it would be for me).
