Hey guys, I need to patch our db's to the latest patch and we're currently on (where x=CPU patch).

I'm curious how much "testing" time people build in when doing a patch? (versus a version upgrade)

I'm thinking that a patch update probably doesn't require as much testing, but I'm not sure if I might be mistaken.
