Draft IBM Redbooks are books-in-progress. They are produced on a specific topic during a residency. The intent is to post the information much quicker than the formal publishing process allows. The results you read are less polished than the published book and may contain errors because they have not undergone the formal review that takes place for completed IBM Redbooks.
