Bug ID: 66617
           Summary: Developing wiki page: "How do I configure Tomcat to
                    support remote debugging?" does not cover distributed
                    shell scripts
           Product: Tomcat 10
           Version: 10.1.9
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: trivial
          Priority: P2
         Component: Documentation
  Target Milestone: ------

The "How do I configure Tomcat to support remote debugging?" section of the
Tomcat Developing FAQ at
contains the following item:
> If you are using shell scripts to start Tomcat, start it with the following 
> command:
> catalina jpda start 
> [...]

This case visibly refers to *custom* shell scripts. Unfortunately, employees in
my organization appear to have (pretty much) followed that advice even though
we are using vendor-provided shell scripts (those shipped by Tomcat), which
means we effectively modified code that doesn't belong to us (a Bad Idea™).
Colleagues modified the last line of adding "jpda", meaning our
changes are lost at least every time the Tomcat package is upgraded:

Considering that our case is surely far from rare, it would be important to:
1. at least indicate in the existing item that it treats *custom* shell scripts
2. ideally, add an item covering the case of official (distributed) shell
