That COULD work if all software I deployed to PROD worked.
More specifically, getting the software to run on PROD wasn't the issue, getting it to run PROPERLY was.

We do have a DTAP street, but production is always a little different.
For example, it uses SSL (I don't know why we don't use that for everything, even internal services), it should sent out actual emails to actual people, it uses different certificates (because we can't connect to production services from a non-production environment), the firewall is configured differently, etc.

Sometimes you just need to do some testing on production, especially when third party services are involved (which is the case here).
But when you need someone to open a text file for you that process becomes very difficult.

I do agree that we SHOULD document the deployment process for every bit of software though (but we don't).
