The transition from programmer to the manager is made additionally treacherous by the dramatic difference between what made us successful as programmers and what it takes to successfully manage others. The fact that few programming managers receive management training before they start managing further complicates the transition. Not to mention that the approaches to management—managing people in every role and domain—continue to dramatically evolve. This rapid evolution leaves us bewildered and stranded without an adequate supply of role models to follow.

How to Choose the Best Automation Testing Tool and what are the features we have to consider in that tool
I've used Ratiional ClearCase and ClearQuest in the past, but it's been a long time - at least seven years since I used CQ, and probably a decade since I used CC. On a project where we used both, I had them integrated. (I used them enough to refer to them collectively as "ClearWaste".)
I'm currently tasked with evaluating various CM-related suites for where I'm working now, and I'm finding it very confusing to determine just what IBM is currently offering.
I see ClearCase and ClearQuest are still sold. Are they actively supported?
I am looking for the UCM_BLOCK_ACTIVITY trigger for ClearCase and there are lots of referrals to CMCrossroads. Unfortunately, nothing is here. Suggestions?

What steps must the CM Manager perform to properly complete a CM project?
Am working in a old project which has many hg subrepos which seems to be problematic. Am planning to remove subrepos and move to main repository. Is there any better approach to do the same or any tools? Also want to maintain the same metadata and not interested to add all subrepo as single commit to main repository.
With the Harvest r12.1 you have to specify a port number when using/installing an agent.
So the question is what port should we be using? I started using 5101.
Only down side I can think of is that my broker couldn’t have an agent on that same port. Currently, the broker’s agent is only used for testing. That’s no loss; I could live without an agent on the broker. I’ve also already opened 5101 on the boxes behind the firewall so by reusing that number I could avoid the inconvenience of opening up another port.
I have a number of Linux shell scripts for automation of particular operations. For example: merging SVN revisions from one branch to other, update statuses of JIRA tickets, make an Oracle eBS build from sources stored in SVN or git etc.
