The end of CSP!
IBM has announced in a Statement of Direction (SoD) that it is changing it's policy for supporting AIX - starting with the next TL (technology level) release for AIX 5.3. Existing releases are not affected.

My apologies to anyone who tried to post and could not. I'll be watching closely - but if you think something is wrong, please post on site forums - and I'll check on it.
