We have a build server at work that handles our software releases. It runs a particular version of the tools.
I have updated my tools and noticed that my builds were failing locally. I investigated this further and I know the problem is caused by one of the tools, but I wasn't able to find an easy solution even though I know the exact cause.
I have a fairly high work load right now, so I haven't said anything yet. I simply downgraded my own tools to match the build server. I am not looking to take on any extra work right now...
I know the build server will get updated eventually (could be months, could be hours, it is about a year behind the official releases right now). Should I just wait until the builds start to fail to deal with it, or be proactive and deal with it now even though it's just adding more work to my plate? I am positive it will be dumped on me when it happens.
