Content starts here  The Software Products Library Package (SPL KIT) Continued:

  Contents of an SPL Kit:

May include the operating system and most layered products. A valid Software Update License is required to access and use each software product on the discs.
In addition to the software binaries, the discs also include the following software product information: Software Product Descriptions (SPDs), Installation Guides, individual product Cover Letters, and Release Notes.
SPL Software Updates Service customers can request quarterly updates on CD-ROM discs for OpenVMS Alpha. Subscribers can also download newly updated products from this website prior to receiving the hard media.

  SPL Kit subscription information:

The SPL Kit subscription, a software update service, provides customers with a one-year subscription service that entitles them to request quarterly releases of the latest software binaries and online documentation on CD-ROM.
A purchase of the Software Products Library complete kit is recommended for new customers, as the quarterly Software Updates Service may not include all components. Customers must be properly licensed, either through a Support Agreement that provides the rights to use new versions of software or through the purchase of a Software Update License to use any new revisions of software binaries that are included on a distribution.
