I think that James was correct to do this -- or rather James'
computer correctly ran the cronjob scheduled for every six hours.
I don't think that we should expect him to respond to emails
within a few hours and cancel a cronjob; he needs to sleep, work,

As a general rule, I don't think that we should ever say "don't
try to merge staging".  Instead, rename staging to broken-staging,
and delete the staging branch.  Unfortunately it's too late now,
but hopefully next time we can avoid damage that way.
