Patching a server, which means "adding Drieghan to it", is a sysadmin job. Creating patches is a software engineer's job. The only ressources that Pearl Abyss could possibly shift if we take your theory seriously are software engineers, not sysadmins, because obviously, before taking over RU, Pearl Abyss had no russian sysadmins in their task force to shift that would make your theory credible. Additionaly ,when RU got taken over they obviously needed to hire sysadmins. Do you really believe that such a job, takes as little time as a flipping burgers job, to get operationnal at, to the point you're able to master all the process involved in paatching a server ? For example , it not means only being able to press the power on and power off buttons, there is a service managment process, sanity check processes, troubleshooting mastery required to fix things in a timely manner in case **** happens during a maintenance etc. In other words, PA just took over RU, let the new employees master their job in order to provide decent quality server managment instead of wanting to rush things then QQ because maintenance last twice the required time since the sysadmins have to figure out issues from scratch. Food for toughts that might help getting a more educated opinion about IT related issues.
