Perhaps the following link is helpful, despite the poorly /named/
link shown _underlined_ in the snippet of text quoted from that URL;
"poorly named" because the text clearly calls-out the "base package"
rather than using text that conspicuously implies fixes from the
"optional packages" are included [or so I infer; see my followup after

• IBM i Access Client Solutions - Windows Application Package:
• Note: The AFP Printer Driver for Windows 8.1 and Windows
Server 2012 R2 must be obtained from Ricoh. For more information see
support for AFP Printer Driver for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1.
• IBM i Access Client Solutions - Linux Application Package:
Expanding the earlier updates [fixpack] descriptions show that some
offer no fixes specific to any _optional package_, from which the
logical inference is that there are only _base package_ fixes included.
And conversely, the appearance of the bullet(s) explicitly naming one or
both _optional package_ would seem to suggest these fixpacks must
contain updates for more than just the _base package_.
