public as a series of "Y2K Application Updates", one update
for what AT&T Labs considers an "application".
For use outside of AT&T, AT&T Labs is not certifying this
information is correct, that any software, including repairs
and tests, will help others in any way, survive the year
2000, nor work with current applications. Nor is AT&T
taking any responsibility for repairing any Y2K problems
that were overlooked nor repairing any bugs in any
"Y2K Application Update". All risk of using this Y2K
Application Update remains with the user who is expected
to test that this update meets their needs.

Any distributions of the updates must keep the entire update
