1. Host the docs on a web server. That way you can manage your docs
even if engineering has given up on managing their releases. After
each release, go through the changed UI and update as necessary.

2. Rewrite everything as task-oriented topics. Then UI changes will
require less revision, plus users will find instructions that relate
to how they use the product rather than how it's designed. Google
task-oriented documentation, there's lots of stuff out there.

3. Find a new job.
