Why does CA RS 1608 not reference any Endevor r18 INC00 PTFS?

Question: 

We are running Endevor r18 INC00 and our last maintenance was almost a year ago. I tried to install CA RS 1608 and  I get the following message:

Your selection in the previous step resulted in exclusion of all maintenance from installation into all selected zones. There is nothing to install. Click Back to review your

selection.

There are 84 PTFs in RECEIVED status so I find it hard to believe that none of them are maintenance between CARS1509 and CARS1608. 

Can you tell me why CSM is not selecting anything to apply?

Answer: 

Endevor r18 INC00 is an incremental (Agile) release, and by design, maintenance developed for incremental releases do not participate in CA RS releases.

This is why application of maintenance via CA RS 1608 selection for Endevor did not include any PTFs.  Once Endevor r18.0 moves from an incremental release to

a mature 'GA' release, subsequent r18.0 maintenance will become part of the CA RS packages.
