comment The optimal recipe problem
I don't think so - I think it's more a cost/benefit analysis. If you can quantify the benefit of using certain rules, and quantify the cost of acquiring new resources, then you can judge the relationship between them to select the best combination.

comment Is it okay to make coding style changes on an open source project that doesn't follow best practices?
+1 on the merge conflicts. I just accepted a coding style rework and I wish I hadn't, since it's caused merge conflicts with other people's PRs. It's easy to resolve but I'd have rather done it piece by piece

comment Doing localization each Sprint
@Eugene It doesn't matter what it advocates, but rather what you do with it. Are you shipping packaged software that needs manual updates? A website you can push new translations to on the fly?

It's not a tractable problem if you require exact precision

comment Do you have to rename the software when you fork a repo?
@nbrogi I'd email the original author via their github profile and see if they want to transfer ownership to you directly

comment Do you have to rename the software when you fork a repo?
This question could be more clear. Are you referring to (1) Using "Fork" on github to send patches to the upstream or compile a custom version for your own use, or (2) creating a fork that uses the same original codebase and diverges in another direction that competes with the original project?

comment Should I store test files in source control?
Storing the zip file in source control will result in more storage used than just the text, since it will have to keep binary blobs instead of just diffs.

comment Coding Style for Visually Impaired Programmer
I'd also push for your employer to buy a larger screen. They should absolutely see that it's an investment in productivity, and they should be providing it, especially where there's a very legitimate reason (in this case your visual impairment). As for the code reviewers disliking stack space usage: has it led to a real performance issue, or is it just micro-optimization griping? Unless you're coding for embedded systems, this shouldn't be a problem.

Is this on topic? Couldn't this concern apply to a business owner in any field?

comment Keeping track of projects
If the project is really small then it's not even in company's VCS. - This is a BIG problem! If your company doesn't allow you, keep it in a local git repo and back it up. History management is critical!
