As I have said, I don't yet 'grok' the concept of Agile...

maybe I just got lost in rambling... and there is no valid point.

I am not trying to advocate for or against Agile. You asked me how
things happen where I work. I tried to answer, trying also, within my
limited comprehension, to identify what I thought were or were not agile
traits. I am not particularly interested in learning more about Agile
right now (My brain is full of copyright and finance stuff at the
moment...), I was more trying to provide you with answers to your questions.

All people make mistakes. Hopefully they are not too harmful, and
hopefully we learn something. Then hopefully we can move on.
