I second that motion. I will be unable to attend but am very much
interested in the subject matter.

SHARE BOF-VM software support
Perhaps a BOF would be an appropriate gathering to answer some questions
that have been building up for me and, probably, others. I maintain VM,
z/VM 4.4, which is as current as our hardware will allow. VM is so stable
that I don't spend half of my time anymore living inside IBMLINK looking
for a PTF to fix the latest CP abend. A couple of times a year when I do
try to apply maintenance and I go to IBMLINK or whatever is the redirected
URL de jour, I flounder around trying to figure out how to order the must
current RSU and COR. I am certain that the Endicott IBM people have this
all memorized and it is very logical for them, but for the occasional
visitor, trying to figure out where to go is a real challenge.
If others have the same kind of questions and could pose them to an IBM'er
or two, perhaps a logical, easy to follow roadmap could be put
together. I'm not volunteering to lead or host a BOF because I don't have
the foggiest idea how to go about that, but I would certainly be interested
in, at least. cornering a couple of likely looking IBM'ers or other experts
such as Martha Mc. or Jim V. at skids and plying them with the beverage of
their choice to coax the secrets out of them.
