I think it matters a lot because it shows that a few months ago, we
were just missing each other. I am sorry for my part in this.
Surely, stress and pressure didn't help back then.

It'll take a while for us to get there, as teams mostly just formed
and much stuff is still in flux. Let's just keep this in mind
throughout the DC16 cycle.

Nigel already responded: this is how the DC16 team wants to do their
work, so we're square on that front. And with experience from DC15,
even teams like infrastructure and video can give a better estimate
this time 'round.
