there is no manager role in tomcat-users.xml ... should I also add 
that... I modified the both username to have the manager role, but am 
not sure if that role also needs to be added

Here is the file after my mod:

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
  <role rolename="tomcat"/>
  <role rolename="role1"/>
  <user username="tomcat" password="tomcat" roles="tomcat"/>
  <user username="both" password="tomcat" roles="manager,tomcat,role1"/>
  <user username="role1" password="tomcat" roles="role1"/>

the admin webapp is highly useful for deploying .war files ... why was 
it removed? I dont know what 'removed upstream' means, but I think the 
admin webapp needs to be there.
