Quite often on this online forum, the usual question is why do the status messages
on the tracker not appear to stream in a logical order. Applicants appear to get
worried about their application if that takes place.

The reason for the not-so-logical flow of status messages is that the procedures at
the RPO are run in parallel to conserve time and the condition messages for these
parallel actions do not suggest the logical flow that they need to suggest within the
short condition message displayed. In many cases there is nothing to get worried
over the seemingly random and conflicting status messages on the tracker.
