When I noticed I was credited for a fix on the changelog page for Tomcat 5.5.27 (search for "Passell" on the page if you don't believe me!), it made me feel a bit giddy. Does that make me a total dork? Well, I've been using Tomcat since it emerged out of the Apache JServ project many years back, so it makes me proud to think that I've helped make it better, even if just a little bit.
Update: my fix was incorporated into Tomcat 6.0.20 as well.
