yeah, I have software that already does that. However, two reasons
that wouldn't work here...1) it has to be something that each of the
10 writers already have and 2) it gets compared to a CD that we don't
get early enough to be of use. The file list is from a set of
directories where we drop our final files. The file list is then used
by Release Engineering as soon as the gold CD is cut to verify that
the build process went out and got the files. By the time we get the
CD, it's too late.
