CUM packages tend to be on a quarterly basis once a given release has
been in the field for a while.  The Y2K Groups, on the other hand, are
maintained weekly.  Due to this timing difference there will often be a
difference in what you find on CUM packages and what you find in the
Y2K PTF Groups.

Personally I would plan on applying the group as Jan 1 2000 approaches
(and perhaps again as leap day 2000 nears), but you can also review
the Y2K Informational APARs to determine if any of the PTFs really
apply to your specific installation.
