comment Relation between developers and clients
This is an excellent approach when the client / customer knows what the actual users want (or you can at least trust them to be responsible for knowing -- whether they actually do or not). Somewhat out of scope maybe, but when that falls apart, pressure and frustration ensue.

comment Licencing FOSS for profit
It also (in my opinion) provides a nice way to support the original development effort without potentially suffering lawsuits which could cause a company to have to release its IP if they do something outside the spirit of the GPL.

comment Licencing FOSS for profit
I've come across it a few times, also in ExtJS: sencha.com/products/license.php I guess I wouldn't say it's common, but most things it is found in are supporting libraries or dependencies that might ultimately get linked in and could cause problems if they didn't allow commercial-compliant license terms.

comment Should I point out spelling/grammar related mistakes in someone's code?
+1 Sometimes sparing someones feelings is important, but when it's a code review ... if you catch it, it's fair game to comment. My company uses crucible for code reviews, which allows all reviews to see that it was caught and allows the reviewer to mark it not as a defect, but as style.
