LIGHTROOM - Error logging and auto-resume Publish services

It's super infuriating to me that Lightroom doesn't have a way to resume a publish operation if an error comes up.

Once in a while, a publish operation will be interrupted or generate an error. (Some of this is probably due to hiccups in my internet connection, other times due to bugs that haven't yet been ironed out by the folks making the publish plugin that I'm using). This paralyzes the whole publish operation, and means that I can't count on it to happen smoothly during my downtime.

I do some pretty big file transfers; even with a faster internet connection, it can still take hours for a publish operation to complete. So I'd like to take advantage of downtime (like overnight) for that to happen. But then, when I get back to my office the next morning, I find a little error report, and that only 20% of the files have made it to the server.

All I have to do is hit "ok", and "publish" again, and then it starts working again. But this is infuriating, because it means that I have to actively babysit my publish services.

I had a large volume of data to publish, days and days of file transfers, and ideally it would have happened on its own while I was on vacation. But with the way that an error report immediately stops the whole publish operation, there's no way to do this efficiently.

The attached screenshots are (I'm guessing) due to one glitch with my internet, and one bug w/ the publish service or server. Either way, Lightroom should be able to log this, and retry a certain number of times, or every X minutes.
