[SciFed] Tomcat 6 requirement for Shib IDP

I asked the lead developer of the IdP for details as to why Tomcat 5 is
not supported. Apparently Tomcat 5 has a problem parsing
specification-compliant cookies that they have chosen to not fix, with
the suggested remedy of "upgrade to 6." As a result, we can only
support Tomcat 6.
Tomcat 6 packages are available directly from the Tomcat project's website:
Future distributions of the IdP with an embedded servlet container would
hopefully reduce the amount of package management you'll need to do.
Hope this answers your question,
