How long does it take the Australian BoM to fix a simple 10°C error in their AWAP temperature anomaly maps?

On the 5th I posted – Southwest Queensland heat wave 2 July 2014 – pointing out the 10 degree error for the Bedourie max on 2 July.
After a couple more days the 30 was fixed to a 20 here.
But I see this morning 14th July after another week passes – that the 10 degree error is still in the AWAP maps.
How can the BoM which has been in existence for over a century – not have routine operating procedures in place to ensure that these tiny tasks are promptly done?
Would a 10 degree cold error have been repaired quicker?
The original error was only spotted because it was a huge standout anomaly.
What about errors that are more subtle and harder to spot?
What confidence can we have in the routine BoM AWAP temperature anomaly maps?

  1. I saw that great find by Chris Gilham in the Albany BoM ACORN data –
    I have many articles pointing out puzzling aspects of BoM ACORN adjustments –

    I see today JoNova is carrying the fight on by publicizing the work of Ken Stewart who has examined data at all 104 ACORN sites. Ken deserves a medal for his hard work.
