The use of this information or the implementation of any of these techniques is a customer responsibility and depends on the customer's ability to evaluate and inte- grate them into the customer's operational environment.

Reference to PTF numbers that have not been released through the PUT process does not imply general availability. The purpose of including these reference numbers is to alert IBM CPU customers to specific information relative to the implementation of the PTF when it becomes available to each customer according to the normal 1BM PTF distribution rules.
