When I was working as a systems programmer with an IBM mainframe,
there was one piece of critical software that the applications
group would not let me patch.  "If it isn't broken, don't fix it".
Then, they were installing an add-on that required a patch to be
installed.  Installing that one patch involved installing over
1600 patches, and IBM had to write a fix for me because the IBM
software that controls installation of system software had problems
with the installation of that many patches at once.  And, the
applications group had begun using their test system for production
work, so they had no system on which to test the patched software.

When I was managing a Mailman installation, I kept Mailman
up-to-date, because I never knew when one of my lists would
encounter a bug that had already been fixed.
