> @AlekseiEfimov Thanks for making this happen so fast. Do you see any chance to have this backported to LTS releases where this is required? I have reported the issue initially and like to make this available in Tomcat 8.5+.

Hi @michael-o,
I'm not involved in the backporting process to older releases. You'll need to find the right contact for a particular release you need a backport for, and ask there.
