new templates after patch

The other day I patched a database and I had to run autoconfig at the end.
It seemed a template was modified by a patch, and this template had a customized version.
The following lines were produced by autoconfig...

Starting Utility to Report Version Conflicts at Fri Jun 01 00:19:04 MEST 2007Using VersionConflictListGenerator.java version 115.4
[ AD_TOP ]

Template shipped by oracle is having a version different than the template lying in custom directory.Template shipped by Oracle : /opt/software/applmgr/SID/appl/ad/11.5.0/admin/template/APPLSYS_ux.env(version: 115.89)Custom template : /opt/software/applmgr/SID/appl/ad/11.5.0/admin/template/custom/APPLSYS_ux.env(version: 115.88)Please resolve the differences between the two templates or refer to metalink note 165195.1 for further details.

So, autoconfig shows me which templates have a different version. Now I have to find out which customizations are made to this template and update the customized template to the higher version of the template. You can use the unix 'diff ' command to compare the two templates.
Adjust the customized template and run autoconfig again..
You can also look into the patch logfile to find out which templates are modified....
