Get feedback from the IBM team to refine your idea
Help IBM prioritize your ideas and requests
The IBM team may need your help to refine the ideas so they may ask for more information or feedback. The product management team will then decide if they can begin working on your idea. If they can start during the next development cycle, they will put the idea on the priority list. Each team at IBM works on a different schedule, where some ideas can be implemented right away, others may be placed on a different schedule.
Receive notification on the decision
Some ideas can be implemented at IBM, while others may not fit within the development plans for the product. In either case, the team will let you know as soon as possible. In some cases, we may be able to find alternatives for ideas which cannot be implemented in a reasonable time.
Allow LISTDEF to be used by REPAIR where appropriate at partition level that includes a range (1:50)

Eliminate Reorgs failing with S513 & IEC146I 513-04 when reorging LOBs
The cause of the S513 error is due to the DB2 reorg utility trying to write two image copies in parallel (one for BASE and one for LOB) when a BASE UTS with LOB TS is being REORG’d and the specified template for image copy datasets has the STACK Y...
