Always good to hear that someone is reading what I write, both .plans
and my code.

It's great to hear that you able to get the code to run, I tried really
hard to make it as generic as possible.  I would be very interested in
any changes you had to make to get it to run.  And, we rarely turn down
enhancements :)
I would also be interested in how useful the "dummy" sql I wrote is.
That is the code that makes up for the fact that you don't have access
to the real data (like making OGR_idlookup).

As for the help I mentioned, get the latest stats.sql.  It creates a
table called ogr_complete that has much better formatting, not to
mention a history.

As for your specific questions:

I certainly hope you find a bug that increases uour completion rate, but
I'm quite happy to hear that no bugs have been found.

Windows clients that are version <8012 produced questionable results.
As for the specifics, the developers would be better to ask.  I was just
told what I told you :)  You might also want to talk to Joel as well, as
he was big in getting this thing going and wrote the filter program

Yes, this goes back to the original way filter.pl was written, in which
it wrote out to three separate files.  We decided to make ogr24 and
ogr25 be all together, so this was changed, and then it was changed into
being a pipe, so it would be similar to the filter program currently
used to rc5

I've been manually sending a list of completed stubs to Bovine about
once a week.  I'm pretty sure that means we're only sending out the
stubs that have not completed pass2

Always!  As I mentioned, the specific issue I mentioned in my .plan is
done, but there's still work to be done, enhancements to be made.
