What Patch Level am I at - 5.1B-?

I a vendor is telling me I need to get my OS to 5.1b-3 or 5.1b-4.

I ran "sizer -v" (entire contents follow)

HP Tru64 UNIX V5.1B (Rev. 2650); Tue Jul 10 20:15:00 EDT 2007

I also ran "dupatch -track -type kit" (entire contents follow);

Patches installed on the system came from following software kits:
- T64KIT1001143-V51BB27-ES-20070305 OSF540
- T64KIT1001188-V51BB27-ES-20070404 OSF540
- T64V51BB27AS0006-20061208 OSF540


I can't figure out what the "B27" or "AS0006" translates to as far as what I need to be at for the vendor. Any help is appreciated.

Possibly better:

dupatch -track -type patch_level | grep 'Patch Kit'

Around here:

Patch Kit 5: T64V51BB26AS0005-20050502 OSF540
Patch Kit 6: T64V51BB27AS0006-20061208 OSF540
Patch Kit 7: T64V51BB28AS0007-20090312 OSF540

I believe that PK7 ("B28") is "-5" (and so
on), so PK6 ("B27") should be "-4", and PK5
("B26"), "-3". It's all pretty sad, but you
can't tell the players without a program:

Some people might say that such a vendor
should be able to tell you how to determine
