comment Should a development machine be inside a VM?
@EdwardBowles the article Anton mentions is about a developer using a virtual machine installed on his local computer, it doesn't talk about servers. I believe it's a different user case and I don't think the server-related issues you're talking about apply to this case.

comment Tools for managing a complicated project setup with many frameworks and no documentation
+1. To complement the answer there are tools that automatically generate the UML from the source code, eUML2 comes to mind but I'm sure there are others.

comment How do you handle ever-growing piles of issues to be resolved “somewhen”?
@PéterTörök I totally agree with you. Unfortunately, not every dev has the internal motivation for quality you're talking about. Letting them slack by giving the issues they're responsible for to somebody else only worsen the situation.

@PéterTörök of course, which is why senior devs should be responsible to fix their errors, not giving them to somebody else.

@mouviciel I think there are better and more stimulating ways to train junior programmers than let them work on bugs but I do agree that it is a way to learn the codebase. Another problem with this approach is that senior developers may end up just writing code not caring for introducing bugs because there are the junior developers that will fix them anyway.

Having junior programmers fix bugs is a bad idea, unfortunately this is a widespread practice in the industry. The most cost-effective way of fixing a bug is letting the developer that introduced it fix it.

comment How can I properly manage commits, prevent feature conflicts, and manage dependencies with a VCS?
I totally disagree on working on the trunk. If the trunk get broken everybody will be affected. I also disagree on branching after a major release, what if a bug affects two or more releases, you fix it in every branch ?
