In this note we revisit the discussion on minimal repair in heterogeneous
populations in Finkelstein (2004). We consider the corresponding stochastic
intensities (intensity processes) for items in heterogeneous populations given
available information on their operational history, i.e. the failure (repair)
times and the time since the last failure (repair). Based on the improved
definitions, the setup of Finkelstein (2004) is modified and the main results
are corrected in accordance with the updating procedure for the conditional
