LOL, is that a common term, or did you make it up? It's fantastic! At first I thought you had to get a motel or couch-surf because of termite tenting

I work in software too, I think we keep a pretty reasonable balance of bug workoff vs new features per release.

IMO we've see a real uptick in software quality over the last few years by switching tooling and process. We used to CM with clearcase and bug-track with clearquest, but we switched to git (actually an entire atlassian suite including jira for issue tracking and bamboo for continuous build/test). The transition was painful, but worth it. Navigating DRs/commits/branches through the browser is super convenient, and it's enabled us to add peer/manager review of all pull requests into the baseline, which I think is the biggest factor.

I'm just a tiny bit sad that I missed out on ever using subversion, because it's the best possible name for a software CM tool.
