Y'know, you hit it right on the head. Project management was one of the big missing things in Parrot's run, and I'm glad someone's been gotten to do it. Having one would've made things go better, and realizing I was doing project management would've potentially made things go better as well.

[ambrus]: Corion: sure, this is the long-term plan. The short term is that I have to run this ungodly mess to get results from the new input data today.
[Corion]: ambrus: Most of our "automation" is tied to process exit codes and a shell pipeline :-\
[LanX]: ... a week later they realized that one of the databases - which recorded how much the other banks due to this bank - was not correctly plugged
