Subject [Tomcat Wiki] Update of "TomcatVersions" by KonstantinKolinko

Dear Wiki user,

The "TomcatVersions" page has been changed by KonstantinKolinko:

Explain RTC and CTR

  The way Apache is structured and governed it is impossible to say that there will be no
further enhancements, bug fixes or releases for a given version. Therefore, rather than use
"No" in the tables below "Highly unlikely" has been used. That said, highly unlikely means
exactly that and users of versions that are highly unlikely to see another release, even for
security fixes, should consider moving to a later version.
  It is anticipated that releases will be provided for a maximum of 3 major versions at any
one time.
+ The "Process" field in the following tables documents what development model is accepted
by that project, either [[|Review-Then-Commit]]
or [[|Commit-Then-Review]].
For RTC model the changes are first proposed in the `STATUS.txt` file in the root of the project
and have to gain at least 3 "`+1`" votes before being applied. The project members have agreed
on several [[#RTC_Exceptions|exceptions]] from the RTC rule (documented below).

   * Changes to the documentation (including Javadoc) are C-T-R.

+ Via [[]] :
   * Allow C-T-R for trivial fixes to English messages that are in resource files and those
that are inline in the code. This includes typos and rephrasing, but does not include adding/removing
message parameters.
   * Allow C-T-R for any fixes for non-English resource files. The files must use 7-bit characters
only. Other symbols must be escaped with \u, as does native2ascii.
   * Require some indication in the commit message for code that usually is covered by RTC,
that this commit was done using C-T-R rule.

   * The versions that were moved to the archive are C-T-R.
