My understanding of this is other technologies have had other avenues to
order PTFs and other fixes outside of Fix Central, whereas the IBM i folks
have been doing it this way for some time. In the end it always winds up
sending the requested files to the server that sends out that message. So,
that message (however clumsy) is meant for the others, not for us.

I'll need some serious correction if I'm wrong on that.
