comment Does a time estimate equal a promise in Scrum?
"If you do make this commitment, this means you are willing to do some extra hours..." No way. This interpretation of the word commitment is exactly why the word was removed from Scrum. If you find you may not be forecasting the completion of all items selected, talk to the PO and make a new plan. Suggestions like this are what cause the endless cycle of under estimating and pushing for higher velocity as a goal in-and-of itself.

comment Scrum for specialists teams
Fair. My attempt was to address each item of concern directly. My conclusion was certainly poor. Appreciate the response.

comment When to do Code Review
Contracts aside, Scrum teams deliver value not services. We develop/program as a means to deliver that value.

comment When to do Code Review
Scrum doesn't say or advise anything regarding schedule. It does expect you to deliver value on a regular basis. It also provides moments in which you can inspect and adapt your process so as to get better (better not necessarily meaning faster).
