I have a few:

Note: To make the steps educative, we will start with fresh Apache
Tomcat installation installed in folder in our home. For production
deployment, this is not recommended – you should install and set up
Tomcat properly.

Why not simply tell your readers how to set it up properly? You don't
indicate what parts of your setup are "not proper".

$ echo "" > WEB-INF/web.xml

That's weird. Why not just tell the reader to create WEB-INF/web.xml and
put the following text into it?


I don't think you need these, do you?

Finally, the ~/demo/apache-tomcat/conf/context.xml file needs to be
modified so that is contains

<Context reloadable=“true“ privileged=“true“> instead of just <Context>.

This is a bad idea: have the user modify the context.xml file for the
Bugzilla wrapper webapp, instead of editing the site-wide context
defaults (i.e. use META-INF/context.xml instead).

Everything else is bugzilla-specific, so I don't comment.
