Re: "US, Canada finally ground 737 Max jets..."
"Everyone involved in that part is recorded, and so when it fails we get a boot up the ass. How do you record all of that on software? Unless its a very simple program, you're unlikely to have just a single software engineer working on it for the lifetime of the project. How do you show who put the dodgy line of code in, and when? Why did they do it ? Was it checked? How do you PROVE the code was checked?"
Version control will show exactly who changed what when. It won't show if it was checked but it'll show who's responsible for checking changes in.
