--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

A more complete fix for FIPS
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeLog:

* Wed Jul  2 2008 Rob Crittenden <rcritten redhat com> - 1.0.7-6
- Update the patch for FIPS to include fixes for nss_pcache, enforce
  the security policy and properly initialize the FIPS token.
* Mon Jun 30 2008 Rob Crittenden <rcritten redhat com> - 1.0.7-5
- Include patch to fix NSSFIPS (446851)
* Wed Jun 18 2008 Rob Crittenden <rcritten redhat com> 1.0.7-4
- Need to fix ownership and permissions of the NSS database as well so
  init after fork will work.
* Wed Jun 18 2008 Rob Crittenden <rcritten redhat com> 1.0.7-3
- Apply patch so that mod_nss calls NSS_Init() after Apache forks a child
  and not before. This is in response to a change in the NSS softtokn code
  and should have always been done this way. (444348, 451960)
* Thu Oct 18 2007 Rob Crittenden <rcritten redhat com> 1.0.7-2
- Register functions needed by mod_proxy if mod_ssl is not loaded.
