To simplify checkouts of the latest sources for each major version of Apache
Tomcat, a Subversion feature called externals has been used. This groups all
the modules for a major Apache Tomcat release as sub-directories of a single
directory and enables them to be checked out in a single command. The modules
included for each version are listed in the section below.
There are some caveats to remember. Since all the subdirectories are still
really different slices from the repository, relative paths won't always work
as expected, for example. See the
Definitions section of the
Subversion Book for details.
The URLs to use to checkout each version are:

Note that if you view these directories in your browser they will
appear to be empty.
