Update Information:

This update fixes some moderate security issues and includes a few enhancements.

* Wed Dec 24 2008 Matthias Saou <http://freshrpms.net/> 1.4.20-6
- Partially revert last change by creating a "spawn-fastcgi" symlink, so that
  nothing breaks currently (especially for EL).
- Install empty poweredby image on RHEL since the symlink's target is missing.
- Split spawn-fcgi off in its own sub-package, have fastcgi package require it
  to provide backwards compatibility.
* Mon Dec 22 2008 Matthias Saou <http://freshrpms.net/> 1.4.20-3
- Rename spawn-fastcgi to lighttpd-spawn-fastcgi to avoid clash with other
  packages providing it for their own needs (#472749). It's not used as-is
  by lighttpd, so it shouldn't be a problem... at worst, some custom scripts
  will need to be updated.
* Mon Dec 22 2008 Matthias Saou <http://freshrpms.net/> 1.4.20-2
- Include conf.d/*.conf configuration snippets (#444953).
- Mark the default index.html in order to not loose changes upon upgrade if it
  was edited or replaced with a different file (#438564).
- Include patch to add the INIT INFO block to the init script (#246973).
* Mon Oct 13 2008 Matthias Saou <http://freshrpms.net/> 1.4.20-1
- Update to 1.4.20 final.
* Mon Sep 22 2008 Matthias Saou <http://freshrpms.net/> 1.4.20-0.1.r2303
- Update to 1.4.20 r2303 pre-release.
* Mon Sep 22 2008 Matthias Saou <http://freshrpms.net/> 1.4.19-5
- Include memory leak patch (changeset #2305 from ticket #1774).
* Thu Apr 24 2008 Matthias Saou <http://freshrpms.net/> 1.4.19-4
- Merge in second changest from upstream fix for upstream bug #285.
* Thu Mar 27 2008 Matthias Saou <http://freshrpms.net/> 1.4.19-3
- Include sslshutdown patch, upstream fix to upstream bug #285 (#439066).
