>> I see that APAR SA74205 has been closed but has anyone seen the PTFs yet?


SA74205 is not my APAR so I can't tell you anything about where the work stands
on it. However, I can and did check our internal records for it. A PTF has been
built and released for V3R1 and for V3R2. I didn't see any PTF info for the
releases following this. (V3R7, V4R1, et cetera).

V3R1  5763SS1-SF49627
V3R2  5763SS1-SF49616

My understanding of the way in which our development problem database connects
to RETAIN is that all a developer has to do for an APAR to be marked "closed"
is to answer it. So an APAR can be closed and no PTF available. I have no idea
why it's done this way. (I barely understand how to log on to RETAIN let alone
the more intricate details of how it works. ;)

For what it's worth,
