Anyway I apologize if my tone was off. I wasn't meaning to accuse
sysadmins of anything, and I guess I didn't realize how overloaded the
team is right now.
That being what it is, perhaps a more productive line of discussion
would be to ask: "what do you need from us so that these things that
need to happen, and that we all want, can reach fruition faster?" You
don't have to suffer in silence! :)
