Aside from the availability of the hotfixes themselves, Support is occasionally asked whether hotfixes should be applied proactively.
Some customers do indeed apply hotfixes proactively, others roll hotfixes into regular downtime/maintenance windows, still other customers only apply hotfixes when directly applicable to a known issue. Support generally recommends that customers be aware of hotfixes so that they can choose a level of proactiveness which meets their business and maintenance requirements.
It is good practice to maintain a list of hotfixes (or at minimum a folder which holds all deployed hotfixes to a server) for situations when for troubleshooting purposes Customer Support need to identify all deployed hotfixes.
