Hey dear Kevin,

The change to version 2 of mod_security is a dramatic change, because
exist a need to completely rewrite their obsolete rules for ability to
use the new syntax.
I search but not find in UPDATE files any references about this, I
believe I forgot this.

Thanks about the alert, I will take the providences!

Best Regards,
