For the past month, I've been trying to push forward with our group's project. The actual work on the project is complete, and my only task at this time is to finish deploying it to our server.
The problem is, we're required to deploy it in a new way, and preparing it for that type of depolyment has been incredibly slow.
This is not due to any changes that have to be made to the project. Rather, it has to do with the development tool being exceedingly slow with every step I need to take to prepare it for this deployment. I have no control over this process, and we can't deviate from the standard practice (we've asked, it is simply not allowed).
My question then is, how do I report this type of delay to my supervisors, without it sounding like I'm personally responsible for these delays? (And, hopefully, without my aggrivation at the software showing through too much)
