Slow library system migration processes 

Our library is migrating from Evergreen to Ex Libris Alma (not my choice). One thing that drives me up the wall is that their test load takes two weeks, and they're only doing one test load before production.

When I migrated us to Evergreen, we were doing test loads on at least a weekly basis for months, so that we could iterate towards perfection.

Why is their loading process so slow? It's 2020, damn it!

@dbs :( ugh, I'm sorry to hear that. That's how I met you all back in the day (virtually); the evergreen community while I was in grad school.

@Greg Huh! Now I'm trying to remember that (virtual) meeting. I'm feeling a bit embarrassed--I feel like I've just admired your work for always

@dbs yeah, meeting is a strong word. "Finding out about your work and maybe chatted indirectly" ;)
