When I go to this URL: http://tomcat.apache.org/migration-9.html#Tomcat_9.0.x_configuration_file_differences and try to run the tool it opens a new tab with the Forbidden message:

You don't have permission to access this resource.

This is the URL reached: https://gitbox.apache.org/repos/asf?p=tomcat.git&a=blobdiff&f=conf%2Fcatalina.policy&hpb=9.0.7&hb=9.0.22

Thanks Mark for the information.

There is now a very narrow exemption in the block that Infra applies that allows the Tomcat configuration file diff utility to work. This should allow us to obtain diffs without exposing the server to abuse.

That said, Infra reserve the right to remove this exemption with no notice if abuse does become an issue.
