Well duh, now I see the 'deliver' task documentation. I'm not sure where
my eyes were earlier. That part of the process makes a little more sense,
although I'm still a little cloudy on it all. It's a complex process going
on, or at least complex to try to describe in words.

I think those are good defects to add, and will help make the process more
transparent to the users.
