The Question is:
Where is documentation on installing remedial kits/ECOs/patches?
Are these three terms interchangeable?
The Answer is :
OpenVMS Alpha ECO kits use PCSI starting with V7.1-2 and later.
Earlier OpenVMS Alpha versions and all OpenVMS VAX versions use
VMSINSTAL-based ECO kits.
The terms are largely interchangeable.
Kit installation instructions are included in the ECO Cover Letter
(file extension is CVRLET_TXT), part of the documentation typically
available with each ECO kit.
For examples of ECO Cover Letters for OpenVMS Alpha V7.2-1, please

This particular URL area contains kits, cover letters and a variety of
files related to ECO kits that apply to OpenVMS Alpha V7.2-1, as well
