Perhaps we could have some representatives from the various
distributions give a joint presentation. Coty, are you in any way
involved with the RHEL package-management of Tomcat? Emmanuel Bourg
appears to be involved with the Debian package-managed distributions
of Tomcat.

The speakers might want to come prepared to be hit with a few
tomatoes, since distro-specific weirdness is something of a popular
topic. Often "install the official ASF distribution" seems to fix many
issues posted here.

I think it would be a good idea to use some of that time to solicit
feedback from the audience about what the distros could do to make
things easier... and perhaps what Tomcat could to to make things
easier for the distros. Package-managed versions of Tomcat always seem
to be hideously out-of-date, for example. Perhaps that's due to our
distribution style (new version) which is quite different from httpd's
style (patches + occasional new versions).
