Re: batch processing and 5.17.16
Good point, batch converter should perhaps take a path to the pcc rather than the campaign tag, worth a JIRA on that.
Alternatively or even additionally, as the datasets are defined in the .pcg itself, worth JIRA'ing a request to make the batch converter determine the sources itself and autoload so you don't *have* to specify them...
