How do you discourage volunteers from scratching their itches?  (Not
that we have them queuing up for the job in this case.)

We are already there: no one touches those files unless they want to.
But you need to give people time to realize that these files are no

we keep the files a little bit longer.  They are just lying there
collecting dust, that's all.
