Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: tomcat5.5

Please consider merging tomcat5.5 from Debian unstable as it contains
fixes for several CVE's and important packaging fixes.

Ubuntu changes that can be dropped:
  - Build-depends on xsltproc: tomcat5.5 package used to build documentation using xsltproc, but is now using Xalan-Java (libxalan2-java). I reckon the build dependency was unnecessarily carried around during merges as Debian stopped using it since 5.5.20-2 (related patches were dropped as well). It's not used in build process and the documentation looks the same with or without it. (http://www.mail-archive.com/debian-java@lists.debian.org/msg11269.html and Debian 5.5.20-2 changelog entry).

New Ubuntu changes are bugfixes, forwarded as:
* Opened http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=458411
* Reopened http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=452366

New Debian version also fixes Bug #173692 and Bug #161882.
