I need the packages for Tomcat, I develop web-apps that we install on a tomcat server.
I know that I can install it from the zip (as a lot of others things), but having this as a package saves my time and I'll get free updates as long the packages is updated.
Why: I don't know similar software in our packages, but tomcat is widely used among Java developers. Having is as package gives support for auto updates and frees the user from "custom installation process" of extra software
Open Source: yes
number of users: Any Java developers that work with Tomcat (?)
