While it might be argued by some pedants that this statement is true, it is
undeniably true that people complete 98% (or less) of a project and then
*ship.* Work may or may not continue on the remainder; ergo, version 1.1.

In an ideal world, everybody has a well-defined job description which is
never under any circumstances deviated from, and there is always sufficient
time and resources available to produce high-quality docs. SMEs always make
themselves available to explain their largon and decisions in detail,
return reviews in a timely manner, and always implement good user interface
suggestions. Market pressures never result in premature ship dates.

If you've found such a place, email me a pointer quietly, please. Don't
send it to the list; we don't want to start a stampede.

Have fun,
Chief Managing Director In Charge, Department of Redundancy Department
DNRC 224
