<title>Documentation User Comments</title>
<section name="Introduction">
<p>The Tomcat documentation integrates the
<a href="">Apache Comments System</a>.
It allows users to add comments to most documentation pages. The comments
section can be found at the end of each page.</p>
<section name="Allowed Content">
<p>Please use the Apache Comments System responsibly. We can only provide
this service to the community as long as it isn't misused.</p>
<p>The comments are not for general Q&amp;A.
Comments should be pointed towards suggestions on improving the documentation
or server. Questions on how to use Apache Tomcat should be directed
to our <a href="">mailing lists</a>.</p>
<p>Comments may be removed by moderators if they are either
implemented or considered invalid/off-topic.</p>
<p>HTML is not allowed in comments, and will just display as raw source code
if attempted. Links that do not point to an Apache site (* will
need approval by a moderator before the comment is visible to regular visitors.</p>
<section name="License">
<p>Any submitted comments must be contributed under the terms of the
<a href="">Apache License, Version 2.0</a>.</p>
<section name="Verified Users">
<p>Verified users gain the Apache feather next to their name,
and may post comments with links in them without requiring approval
by a moderator before the comments are shown. Being a verified user
in itself does not give you moderating rights. If you are interested
in becoming a verified user, please contact us on the
<a href="">users mailing list</a>.</p>
<p>All ASF committers are automatically verified users.</p>
<section name="Moderators">
<p>Moderators are allowed to mark comments as "Resolved", "Invalid"
or "Sticky", remove marks, approve comments e.g. if they contain
a link, and delete comments. Moderators can also subscribe to new
comments and comment updates and use the dashboard to gain some
overview over all comments of a site.</p>
<p>To use the moderation features, you need to login to the comments
system. Furthermore you will need to allow cookies to be set for (this is done using a secure https cookie). Once
logged in as a moderator you will see additional moderation
options attached to each comment.</p>
<p>If you are a long time follower of the Apache Tomcat projects
and you are interested in becoming a moderator, please contact us on the
<a href="">users mailing list</a>.</p>
<section name="Privacy Policy">
<p>No data except what you personally submit is kept on record.
A cookie is used to keep track of moderators and other people
who wish to create an account to avoid having to enter their
credentials whenever they wish to post a comment.</p>
<p>To prevent spam and unsolicited comments, we use a digest of
visitors' IPs to keep track of comments posted by them.</p>
<p>Entering an email address when you post a comment is completely
optional, and will not be shared with anyone. If you enter an
email address, it will be used to notify you when someone posts
a reply to one of your comments, provided you have registered
an account and validated your email address.</p>
