PID - Post-Interim Drop (was: Informix 10 permissions problem?)

Post by Jonathan L » Sun, 29 Jul 2007 13:48:23



A PID is a post-interim drop, also redundantly called a PID-drop.

It will have a version number such as 10.00.xC5P1 (where I think the
letter is indeed P, but there is some capital letter used, followed by a
number - and the letter is not X which would be a patch release -
one-off for a specific customer.).

A PID has a collection of fixes and some minimal level of QA, and the
changes are expected to be rolled into the next interim (eg 10.00.xC6
for a 10.00.xC5P1). PIDs are generated quite frequently - like about
every month.

PID - Post-Interim Drop (was: Informix 10 permissions problem?)

i All,

Jonathan is of course correct, but I just wanted to make one slight adjustment.

For whatevere reasons, the powers that be decided that a PID would be marked with a W.

Thus the latest PID available for 10.00.FC6 is W5.

Product would be branded 10.00.FC6W5.

I kinda of wish it were a P.

s an aside, for those of you concerned with certain bugs in 10.00.FC6W5, you may want to call Tech Support and see if the defects have been corrected. I'm pretty certain it has been.

PID - Post-Interim Drop (was: Informix 10 permissions problem?)

Thanks for the info guys!

Is there anyway to tell when a release is going to come out, xC7 in
this case? We are either going to live with the onconfig problem or
wait for xC7.
