1. The page says little more that official Logging documentation in Tomcat.

2. The page does not mention it, but most of what is written there is
applicable to Tomcat 6 and later. That is why there is no "extras" in

Tomcat 5.5 uses Apache Commons Logging library "as is"

Tomcat 6 uses its own build of that library, renamed into different
package to minimize interference with webapps. There are several
variants of that library - one is provided in "extras".

Tomcat 5.5 reaches EOL in several months, so we wouldn't need to care
about the difference soon. I'm already starting to forget things.
