    Staging Patches using Update Manager on 6.5

    radix2 Lurker

      When choosing the patches to stage in Update Manager, by default, it chooses the below patches. From all that I've read, rollups should include all previous patches (and even patches include previous patches), and yet, in this list there is a rollup from 3/27/2019 and still, it's chosen all patches dated earlier. By staging all of these patches, is this redundant (and wasted time) or are all of these truly required?
