Business Architect Essentials (v.8) - Rules and rulesets
Hi Pega Community!
I'm working through the BA Essentials Course version 8. While going through rules and rulesets I encountered this explanation for patch versions:
The patch version consists of fixes to address bugs in an application. For example, you notice that a field in the current version of an application has an incorrect label. You create a new minor version to correct the field label.
Is the example incorrect for explaining that a bug fix would require a new minor version? If the issue is to correct the existing field label would it not be a patch version?

Your application will always use the latest patch available for a rule (e.g. 01-01-05) without requiring you to make any changes to the referenced rulesets:
