Cumulative PTF package is the term used by IBM for its periodic release of a bundle of PTFs for a given version of OS/400. It is also known as a "cume" (pronounced "kyoom") or "cume tape" (be careful not to omit the "e" when emailing someone about a cume ptf ... many spam filters will trigger on the word).
