It reminds me of a company, where the ticket for one of the development tasks
I was assigned started "Now that we've signed the contract with
$third_party we need to work out whether it's possible to deliver
what is described in the agreement." And what do you, dear mis-management, think
I the programmer am going to do, if it turns out not to be possible? Perhaps it
would have been a good idea to ask the programmers first, before making
promises that you may not be able to keep.
