My co-workers are working on fixes for our last build that the users have reported. I've completed my changes, and once they are done I'm to use our HP Fortify tool to scan the changes for ISO-Compliance, then deliver the changes to our build stream for deployment.
While I have a few things I can prepare for the next build, most of it can't actually be put in until these changes are done and our build has moved forward. And because our scan takes considerable time, I need to allocate my time wisely.
In short, I'd like to know how things are coming along. But our boss hasn't come in yet today, and we're on equal levels in terms of the employee hierarchy around here. I also suspect this situation could happen again.
Would it be rude of me to ask them for a direct update on how long they think these changes will take?
