comment Which things instantly ring alarm bells when looking at code?
The flipside of this is people who slavishly follow "best practices" without any critical thought as to why something is a "best practice". This is why I strongly dislike the term "best practice", because for some people it's an excuse to stop thinking and follow the herd. "Because it's best practice" is never an acceptable answer to the question "why are you doing this?" If you can't articulate why something is a best practice, then it's not a best practice, it's a superstition.

comment What features are vital for good bug tracking software?
When a bug is created it's assigned to the default person who decides what to do with it (could be the project lead or project manager).

comment What's the worst programming book you've ever read?
Agreed. The free online Subversion book (svnbook.red-bean.com) is much better. Also, the index in Pragmatic Version Control using Subversion is useless for finding what you want.
