How about "(Web?) Application Developers' Guide", to more closely map to the
servlet spec terminology. For the other bit, maybe "Container Architecture Guide".
I think we should avoid the phrase "Tomcat Developer" since, as this mailing list 
proves, many application developers think that since they are developing on 
Tomcat, they are Tomcat developers. 

As a side-rant, "tomcat-dev" is really a bad name for this list (and as a pattern 
for the other Jakarta lists), since a "Windows Developer" generally is someone 
who develops for rather than implements the Windows platform, ditto "Java 
Developer", etc. "tomcat-contrib", "struts-contrib", etc. would be much more
