That would be a reasonable expectation given a Git-centric project tool.
But we are working with some Google tools on a code review site created
for Subversion and have migrated the Google code part more or less to
SourceForge as a stopgap measure before managing self-hosting on the
Free version of its software, a step that we never managed due to a lack
of manpower and ongoing resource needs.  All the while having the
repository itself on Savannah.

So it turns out that a few things that would be obvious candidates for
automation just aren't up to scratch.

On the plus side, "messed this up" seems way overblown for "didn't score
a perfect 10 in a quagmire I got into for the first time".  Our
procedures tend to avoid annoying more than one person at a time, so
it's pretty uncommon that tempers flare up.
