Good point Clara. But for the update process they copy all dirs and
files to a replica server, and then back to the production server when
done. They can't find the updated files on the replica. It turns out
that our rework should not take more than a half day, so more the
nuisance than anything.

I like your attitude Art. I've tried that in the past, and also asking
for notification before they begin. I may have to go higher. On the
other hand, they might reply that REAL tech writers work in a secured
source environment, which I will be looking into more aggressively.
