Perhaps we can step back and do some problem solving here...
Heikki and Bear have a need to not be spending all of their time making
sure the build is green and hunting down problems.
Several engineers have expressed a couple of needs:
+ not to have tasks they only do a couple of times a month, because its
a pain to have to figure it all out each time
+ not to have tasks where they are "enforcing" behavior of other engineers
We've had a few proposals for how we might be able to help with both needs:
+ automate some processes so that people don't make common mistakes
Any other suggestions for how we might meet everyone's needs?
