Patches are not showing up as missing or applied in the patch assessment reports.


If a patch has been superceded by a Service Pack or another fix then it will not display as a specific violation.  The report sees that any patch including a service pack that is not applied is a violation and each individual patch that was superceded shouldnt count more or less but the violation should be equal. 


The SCM 5.8 Patch Assessment functionality was modified to omit patches that have been superceded.
