      • Oh. Two SORs changed in the same update…
      • And a logic bug kicked in, which purged a mapping
        construct that was still needed after the first
        SOR’s update was processed.

    • New update code reports twenty-three accounts as not existing
      which clearly do exist. Why?
      Oh – the programmer missed a few “DATA” uses that should
      have been converted to “TEMP”. Should have them all now.
    • Update UVM schema files to include new attribute that is
      coming for research cloud service.
