READMEs for J2SE patches incomplete

Post by Martin Pau » Thu, 15 Jun 2006 16:39:21



There are these new patches for J2SE 5.0:

  Patch  IR   CR RSB Age Synopsis
  ------ -- - -- --- --- --------------------------------------------
  118666 05 < 06 -S-   2 J2SE 5.0: update 7 patch

The README files (both the one included in the patch zip file and on
Patchfinder) for all but 118669 are incomplete, they are missing the
list of included files, actual bug fixes, etc.

1. obsoleted patch references in kernel patch README file

I've complained about these before, but this time I kept the examples.
Here's those from the README for

118558-24 SunOS 5.9: Kernel Patch

with a little context (and comments in square brackets), but other stuff
that wasn't a problem removed.  What's obsoleted by what was per a
patchdiag.xref no more than a day or two old.  The reason these are all
annoying is because 118558-xx requires 112233-12 anyway, which obsoletes
all the patches below (a number of which are revs that were never even
created)  So all that stuff could be removed from the README, which would
be helpful for those of us who check the entire README to see that we have
all other applicable patches referenced already installed, not just those
on the required line.  Please clean this up, folks!
