Description Thomas Kohler 2011-03-04 20:36:28 UTC
1.) In my opinion the important informations from have to be added.

2.) The basic configuration for /etc/tomcat-6/tomcat-users.xml has to be added (access to manager page).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.emerge tomcat

Actual Results:  
No description of this issues are found at the site:
1.after install of !not masked! tomcat start goes wrong.
2.after fix this issue, manager does not work.
3.optional using of tomcat-native should be described (no dependency - can also be a bug?)
4.after install using "doc" or "example" USE flag both don't work without configuration (can also be a bug?)

Expected Results:  
Using this documentation should end with a working tomcat and a basic knowledge of using tomcat.

Unless the tomcat package is ~arch, only the stable baselayout and initscripts should be documented.

Still, it's not the GDP's problem. We don't maintain documents in /proj/. The Java team is responsible for their stuff.

If/when I make a new guide for Tomcat 7, I will take the suggestions into consideration.
