    I see the errors - I'm on it. Commented Feb 18, 2020 at 23:43
  • A fix is in and Jarrod's doing me a solid to build it out shortly - should be fixed in the next ~ 15. Commented Feb 19, 2020 at 0:01

A fix has been deployed. Nothing interesting here unfortunately so I won't go in depth - just missed an anonymous check in a permissions check.
