Update Information:


There were several security flaws found in the mozilla package, which 
evolution depends on.  Users of evolution are advised to upgrade to this 
updated package which has been rebuilt against a later version of 
mozilla which is not vulnerable to these flaws.

* Wed Mar 23 2005 David Malcolm  - 2.0.4-2

- Removed explicit run-time spec-file requirement on mozilla.
   The Mozilla NSS API/ABI stabilised by version 1.7.3
   The libraries are always located in the libdir
   However, the headers are in /usr/include/mozilla-1.7.6
   and so they move each time the mozilla version changes.
   So we no longer have an explicit mozilla run-time requirement in the 
specfile;
   a requirement on the appropriate NSS and NSPR .so files is 
automagically generated on build.
   We have an explicit, exact build-time version, so that we can find 
the headers (without
   invoking an RPM query from the spec file; to do so is considered bad 
practice)
- Introduced mozilla_build_version, to replace mozilla_version (now 1.7.6)
