Sorry, I didn't realize from this statement "updating records so that
the autogenerated mdwn files correspond to the manual records." that
that meant ONLY fill in dates. I mistakenly thought that the task was
to edit the bugzilla entries to correspond to the budget-sync results.
My apologies. I genuinely did not understand the parameters, even
though I read the instructions very carefully and am taking this
*VERY* seriously. My crucial misunderstanding was thinking that the
records to be updated were the fields in bugzilla that produced errors
in the budget-sync. I clearly did not properly understand what was
implied by the statement "updating records so that the autogenerated
mdwn files correspond to the manual records.", and I still don't
though I see I have just received an email from you with instructions.
I will make sure I properly understand before beginning my task this
time. Again, apologies for messing up financial records.
