The core issue is: how do we get the team in question to acknowledge and respond, with a timely code change?
There is no strong git, or feedback-driven path which determines success or failure notifying google about code problems. Some work, some which used to work don't work now, some which didn't work then work now. Its unstable. Its unpredictable.
