Hi Peter!

As a workaround you might add all developers to the same group or tune 
the chmod/chown/chgrp statements in the script. Please consider the 
TOMCAT_USER variable in the script, too. Root access is not 
necessary as long as you can do without a start script and links in 
/etc/init.d. The start script gets generated to $CATALINA_BASE anyway 
and hopefully can be started with developers' privileges from there.
