We tried multiple calls and it didn't really work I think.

On the other hand, I'd really hate to have the status call in the middle of the
night ‒ sometimes I have trouble sleeping these days and I'm glad for whatever
sleep I get :-|.

Did we think about the gliding time for the call? (Monday one time, Tuesday
another time, etc).

Hmm, I usually scan them in the morning, look at each of them with attitude
„I've seen this already, and this is not my code…“. We probably should eliminate
the number of unrelated/repeating reports.

Another topic ‒ short/implicit form of conversion to boolean is inconsistent in
our style. If this is allowed depends on the type of `pointer`:

  if (pointer) {


If pointer is bare pointer, it is not allowed, if it is int, it is not allowed,
if it is smart pointer or other class, it is allowed.

With regards

Please stay calm. There is no use both of us being hysterical.
