chutney vs. salsa: discuss

I always thought that chutneys were cooked, like chunkier jams/preserves. I just went to the cafeteria and the meal today is called grilled salmon with mango chutney. However their "chutney" is fresh - more like what I consider a mango salsa (though it has raisins in it too, which does make it a bit more chutney-like to me.) Anyway, I don't really care as it's all good and I enjoy both mango salsa and mango chutney, but I'm just wondering if my foodie knowledge is actually better than the chef here and if he should be calling it salsa, not chutney :) WDYT?

ETA: nm, I guess chutneys can be fresh too!
