My response to the interview question would be the same three part answer
that I gave before. 1 Find out for sure what the real word is, 2 find out
whether the people who gave that real word really have the say-so, and then,
assuming that they do, 3 proceed to figure out what actually has to be done
to the docs at this late stage.
Note: Actually finding out what the real word is (and not just the whys
and wherefores, which after all can be irrelevant) can be a challenge.
Finding out who gave the word might be hard too.
The part 3, the actual 'what needs to be done now?', is of course right
important. But it should be asked only after the first two things.
None of this would be meant as trying to poke holes in the questions of
the interviewer. In fact, it's a valid question. 'What do you do, when faced
at the last minute, with a potential massive change to the docs?'
