When a Solaris fixlet goes superseded

When a Solaris patch gets superseded, the name of the fixlet gets (superseded) appended to it’s name and a Note is added that says the patch has been obsoleted by .

Are these changes done locally in the database when the newer fixlet (patch) is delivered, or is the fixlet actually modified by IBM to add to the fixlet name and add the NOTE to the description? If it is the later, why aren’t the details (namely the SHA1, SHA256 and size) modified at the same time?


Please reply to the post on this subject that I placed under the Patch Category…
