in reply to Perl and code reviews

It's funny... as a symptom of the whole "there's no 'build' with perl" phenomenon, the term "build" at our company early converged to what most other people would call "release". "Running the build" meant actually tarring up the source tree and copying it to production, followed by running some sql scripts to convert the database.

We've come an awful long way from there (making use of source control, integrating the source control into the production machine version magnagement and code distribution, using branches for releases, making a robust database conversion framework, etc, etc)... but somehow the (incorrect) term "build" has stuck with us. It's just kind of cute and funny.
