We have a bad PTF that I removed (SI70970). IBM support wants to send a superseding PTF as a test PTF (SI71481). IBM says if I delete the bad PTF and apply the test PTF, I'll end up with this:
SI71481 Temporarily applied (test PTF)
SI70970 Superseded (bad PTF)

If SI71481 is also a bad PTF, they say that removing SI71481 will also remove SI70970. This will cause IBM i to revert to the prior PTF (SI69828). PTFs would show:
SI71481 Not applied (test PTF)
SI70970 Superseded (bad PTF)

It's my understanding that superseded PTFs are permanently applied. I'm skeptical that removing the latest PTF would revert the superseded one. Are my wrong on this?
