It is human nature to believe that we won't repeat a "mistake" made by someone else. A key lesson to me is that (as a bare minimum), every one of these lessons should be added to the readiness checklist for new projects. While I'm not in the aerospace arena, I find it is also very helpful to record the root causes of each programming error that I experience. This not only increases my awareness of the likely errors (so I avoid making them) but also gives some hints of where to look for trouble. (Years ago, I found that my software problems were most often associated with mismatched global variables.)
