We don't actually have any developers and deciding what to recruit is at
the core of the issue. I covered the code development for the intranet but
I have to spend too much time on managing the process now & the job
management system sub-ed out all the development.
We could go forward with contract staff for a few months but there is
already a perception that they don't want to "waste" development in one
language by ditching it later.
