The old Rule #1 of product development was: There is never enough time to do it right, but there is always enough time to do it over.

And now, with accelerated release schedules and people working on more than one product at the same time, there is rarely enough time to do it over. Just fix the bugs.

So the new Rule #1 is: ./configure, make, make install, release.
