Post ideas and requests to enhance a product or service. Take a look at ideas others have posted and upvote them if they matter to you,

  1. Post an idea

  2. Upvote ideas that matter most to you

  3. 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 offering manager 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 repack of TBLSpace extents

When a database has been created in a single (not root) dbspace and the dbspace has been greatly expanded with large tables that are subsequently moved to separate dbspace, the chunks used for original dbspace expansion may contain TBLSpace extents that prohibit dropping the chunks that are no longer needed.

    Thanks,

    Effectively, this looks like a small detail, but in some critical situations when one needs space immediately (i.e at 3:00 AM when the SystemAdmins are sleeping), this makes it impossible to 'detach' this chunk and use it for something else. Not good
