How critical is this fix?
This release is a service release of Rational ClearQuest 9.0.2. It contains new features as well as fixes for client-reported and internally found defects.
A technology update in IBM Rational ClearQuest 9.0.2 might require customers to move to that version or a future version of that product. However, customers can remain on 9.0.1.x of IBM Rational ClearCase unless they upgrade to ClearQuest 9.0.2 and have ClearCase and ClearQuest on the same server.
Known Side Effects
