I recently updated our AD driver shim from 3.5.4 Patch 2a to the latest
3.5.10 Patch 5. Since I had missed many of the other patches (I didn't
even know how many), I wanted to review the release notes for each of
them to make sure that I could update without any intermediary steps.
For example, if the 3.5.10 Patch 5 doesn't include any update to the
pwfilter.dll, but perhaps an earlier update did, I wanted to make sure I
included that in my upgrade.

I found it was not so easy to find the readme documents since Novell
removes the downloads once a patch is made obsolete. Eventually I found
that they were all still online, just not so easy to find, so I thought
I'd post the info in case anyone else can use it:

Note: After I began collecting the links, I finally noticed a pattern
that made it fairly easy to find the ones I couldn't get from searching.
When you look at the download page for a patch that is no longer
available, you can just grab the name of the readme file and append it
to this link to get to the readme:
http://support.novell.com/docs/Readm.../patchbuilder/

Hope someone else finds this useful!
