      I'm not saying that there is a problem but I just wanted to point this out to anyone who knows the backend of the product. I think it would be proactive and smart to bring up possible issues that could impact users in the near future. It may be nothing but managing that many patches is insane....so if something is even a little off, it could still cause major problems (possibly).
