    Hi Wesley,

    Yeah, it’s true…they are working hard, but I’m concerned about that.

    In the SP1, CU4 (before SP1) wasn’t included in SP1.

    The CU1 (after SP1) just have the CU4 (before SP1). Similar cases happened recently, and I never seem this before.

    The big question is:

    Is this a strategy plan?

    or

    Is this a fault?

    Hi,

    I know this may seem weird but it is a strategy of course.  You will understand that at some point in time we have to stop adding fixes to the service pack to stabilize what we have.  In this case the cut off has been made after CU3.  The first CU to come after the service pack will contain all the fixes that didn’t make it to the cut.

    Hope this clarifies the strategy.

    I’ve heard about that strategy, and sounds clear in terms of a project schedule/deadline.

    Thank you…see you next.
