This is definitely the salient point. I would want an e-mail (at
least) from my boss agreeing that, due to a lack of a test
environment, he/she is happy for an untested system-wide change to be
deployed straight into the production environment. Of course, if I
was your boss, I would then require a similar assurance from my boss
and so on and so fifth :)
