Add the description of the PTF is the summary of PTF groups, cumulative, etc...

When you are about to install a PTF group is nice to check which are the PTFs it includes, especially if you want to solve a certain problem. Also is good to check between 2 different groups to check why something works with one group PTF and not with another one. Right now if you try to check what is in one group you need to enter each PTF one by one as not description is included in the summary. Example:

SF99704 740 DB2 for IBM i - level 26

NUMBER      ADDED                  PROGRAM  PACKAGE
MF70567     11/16/23    MA49979    5770999  3313
MF70792     11/16/23    MA50088    5770999  3313
MF70843     11/16/23    MA50044    5770999  3313
MF71000     11/16/23    MA50169    5770999  3313

It will be nice that this should appear as:

NUMBER      ADDED                  PROGRAM  PACKAGE
