    www-servers/tomcat: removed oracle-javamail from deps and hence from tomcat classpath (bug #453212)
    this jar should not be on tomcat's classpath, if one needs it on global classpath, he/she should use TOMCAT_EXTRA_JARS in /etc/conf.d/tomcat-SLOT[-suffix] to put it on the global classpath. the before-the-fix version of the ebuilds made it impossible to put javamail jar inside web application as that resulted in conflict which could be avoided only by removal of javamail jar from the global classpath
    Package-Manager: portage-2.2.27
