... make the changes to your templates and don't tell anyone. If you tell
them you changed the template -- they'll yell at you and you'll spend WAY
more time "defending your decision" then writing documents (like you should
be doing). If you just do it and don't ask, they'll either praise you for
your "ingenuity" or yell at you. The latter has the most chance of being
successful without the involvement of any "review boards".

And this comment is from a group who bitch and moan and gripe about how developers make changes to software and don't keep us in the loop?

So now the guiding rule is that it's OK as long as you don't get caught.

Oh, that's right....I forgot....do as I say and not as I do.

People...if you work for me and the rule says "Do it this way" and you intentionally disregard it, hit the road.
