Re: Various issue with stable/tomcat4

Hash: SHA1

[Cc'ing to debian-java@lists.debian.org because discussion should go on
this list, pkg-java-maintainers is only for the maintainer fields
purpose, we should add this in the Debian Java FAQ]

I have all the three problems but I thought it was a limitation of
Tomcat, I did not know it's a Debian specific problem.

Our problem is Tomcat4 is no more supported, we all focus on Tomcat5.
Tomcat4 will be patched only if a security problem is discovered.

Can you reproduce these bugs in Tomcat5 in testing/unstable?

Thanks for your report.
