comment Whose responsibility is it to create the interface and/or acceptance testing? Developer or QA?
if your QA department consists of people with no programming knowledge, it won't make sense to give them the task to write automated tests So if your QA department is composed of people who have no right to consider themselves a true QA department? How could you claim to do QA and not do automated testing?

comment Adding quirks from an old system to a new system because that's what people are used to - a term for this?
@Snowman Going through this pain currently, except I am getting quirk parity from both users and the COBOL programmers who are involved as technical experts.

comment When do you change your major/minor/patch version number?
I reopened the question as it is not a "how" question but instead a "when" question. It is still very similar to the previous marked duplicate however and may be closed again.

comment Algorithm for figuring out the enemy flag's location in Stratego
Just to be clear, this question is really on topic at both sites. They are merely stating you might get a more targeted or specific answer at GameDev where you might get a larger audience to your question here. Algorithms of all kinds are on topic here.

comment Is it acceptable to ask management for pseudo code?
Not really answering the question but I sometimes find that when business requirements are not clear because the developer is new to an industry or business then sometimes a glossary section will help that defines terms, abbreviations and gives cliff notes for complicated processes that can help provide context. Many times I am surprised how much this alone helps me understand complicated requirements.

That is perfect. I guess all it takes is a simple sentence.

comment Is it acceptable to ask management for pseudo code?
How does this really answer the question? It addresses the problem the user is facing but doesn't even pay credence to the actual question. Great answer, wrong question.

comment What is the argument for never forcing a push in a DVCS (Mercurial)?
@bjones14 To improve your question and prevent it from being closed, do you think you can try explaining your reasoning why this is a bad idea and a use case for why this is a bad idea?

comment Does the games industry use automated testing for visual parts of games/rendering? How?
I tried reopening this since the dupe target was more specifically about strategies in automated testing of OpenGL graphics. This isn't my speciality but I trust the feedback from others who know the game industry very well so I want to give it another chance. For reference to the similar question see here: programmers.stackexchange.com/questions/150688/…
