CentOS-2 update 5 is about to be released. As of update 5, Netscape 4.8
will be removed from the distribution. The currently shipped version of
Netscape 4.8 has security flaws and should not be used.
Users of CentOS-2 should uninstall the Netscape packages and switch to
using mozilla. For more information see RHSA-2004:429-01
Also, in order to easily identify packages which have been modified for
CentOS-2, the release suffix .c2.release will be appended to the
existing release. All packages which currently are missing this suffix
will be reissued with the new suffix. The suffix release will always
start at 1 and be incremented if a package needs to be reissues with
only centos changes. When the original release is increased, the centos
release will start again at 1.
This is part of a new automated procedure which should result in
reproducible modifications which will speed up the release of errata for
modified packages and cut down on errors in the modification process.
