Well, it looks like the Eurogroup President will be sacked by his own electors. That's something. They'll have to find another nonentity to do their dirty work.

I admire the efforts of the ombudsperson, but it's clear she has little power of constraint over this non-institution.

It's clear that the next treaty (assuming there is one), or rather, the EU constitution, needs to create formal organs of governance to replace the Eurogroup clusterf*ck. Parliamentary, not only intergovernmental, with an obligation of as much transparency as is functionally possible.
