SEPG represents the Software Engineering Process Group, a software engineering version of the 7th Circle of Hell. It is their unfortunate lot to pretend that if only software engineers understood what they, the Process Group, were saying and followed their processes, software would be written faster, and have fewer bugs in it, and would pass tests and meet requirements. Every member of the group has a horror story to tell about how difficult their task is, how obstreperous and misguidedly "creative" programmers insist on being, how it like herding goldfish, the long hours they have spent writing process descriptions which no-one is willing to read, and so on. I'm glad to hear they are having a little break. It will give the programmers a chance to get some real work done. Come to think of it this is a workable process! Send the process people on vacation to Nashville!
