The way one hits a moving target is to move as fast as the target. You have to
contact at least one developer each day and say, "Hi, what's new with the
program today?" You may piss them off the first few weeks, but after a while,
they will call you when a module changes or new data flow diagrams are
Rely on yourself, not on others to gain information. Even the second place
runner in a race only gets to see the lead runner's elbows and... well you
pretty much get the idea.
