Clarification on the disclaimer found in patch release notes, are patches suitable for production use? (Doc ID 1980712.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 03, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle WebCenter Sites - Version 7.6.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Patch release notes state this:

“Disclaimer: This one-off patch has only undergone basic QA testing and it has not been through a complete regression test cycle generally followed for a production release.”

Does this mean that patches cannot be used in a production environment?
