I am wondering if the R-U152 SNP Pack will or should be updated.

I am looking at this from a R-Z56 view not knowing if this could apply to other subclades. In R-Z56 we now have men who have tested negative for R-Z43 and as the pack tests for R-Z43 and not R-Z56 it might be helpful to add the SNP's that are R-Z56, R-Z43 negative to the pack.

This might be a good idea.
I would like to add that men who seem to be positive for Z43 (generally DYS492=14), should NOT order the U152 pack but the Z43 pack (or BigY).

Another option is to include R-Z56 in the U152 Pack.
Rename Z43 Pack Z56 Pack, testing Z43, and new Z43 negative SNP's et al in new named R-Z56 pack.
This way men taking U152 Pack can get R-Z56, then do the R-Z56 pack. As it stands someone could do U152 and as they are Z43 negative, will remain R-U152.

Of course much prefer they did the Big Y700. :)
