Interestingly,  I've seen that if I follow the link
"Recommended patch clusters"
then I have to have a contract to download the bundle.
But I can view the README file.

Then, if I instead follow the other link
"Recommended and Security Patches"
then I don't need a contract, just a login, and
I can download the 9_Recommended.zip file.

But here's the interesting bit: the file sizes given
in both areas are the same (217.6M), and the
README files are identical.

So is there any difference?  Is there a list member
who has a valid Sun contract who can download
both files, and tell us?
