Are tentative release dates listed anywhere? Tomcat releases appear to be frequent enough
(about monthly, thanks!!) that a date for the next release is not too crucial, but it would
be nice to have an estimate now that I know it includes a fix I want.

Tomcat releases happen as the need arises and as the committers (who are
volunteers after all) have time to generate them.

As the current Tomcat 7 release manager, I have been producing a Tomcat
7 release at roughly the beginning of each month since the first
release. I have no plans at the moment to change this cycle so I'll
start the next release around the beginning of October and if all goes
well it should be available a week or so later. As with any such plans
they may slip if life and/or work need me to spend my time elsewhere.
