Once authenticated, users do not have write access to the
meta-data or history files of any change set.
The vast majority of "hooks" are in files controlled by Aegis' process;
to maliciously change one requires a conspiracy of
developer, reviewer and integrator.
Aegis is a transaction-based software configuration management system.

It provides a framework within which a team of developers
may work on many changes to a program independently,
and Aegis coordinates integrating these changes
back into the master source of the program,
with as little disruption as possible.

. that reminded me how my logging is helped by a 2-step process:
. one process just adds stuff,
and then another (in a sharp state)
is doing reorganizations, and deletions .
. adde could help by enforcing this:
# the editor-mode user makes only requests
that are virtually filled;
# the reviewer-mode user can fill requests
that do the work, and save the space taken by
holding both the before and after states .
