Also this is how things work in HP-UX: They add patches to the media which
contains the products. Installation will (by default) automatically select the
patches maching the products being installed. That way you get the patches in as
early as can be. Also, you can just have a copy of your software media somewhere,
add the latest patches to that directory, and whenever installing from that
directory, you'll get the latest patches automatically installed.

Despite of problems the software management had in it's early stages, it works
quite well now.

Ulrich
