comment Why is trailing whitespace a big deal?
Adobe InDesign (does that also fall under consumer-level WYSIWYG junk?). It will ignore trailing spaces, yes, but replace all linefeeds with spaces in a paragraph and you'll end up with double spaces (which are not ignored), then an extra replace is needed to eliminate those.

comment Should developers do their own software releases (if there is a prod support team in place)?
Sounds like the support team is also the test team? I guess you should let the test team test it first, or if you lack the test team, then better have support test it before the customers have to (unless your policy is customer=tester like a company i've previously worked for :-).

comment Why are part-time jobs in programming an anomaly?
@ThiefMaster, well not exactly forbidding personal projects, but any commercial activity, so no personal shareware or the likes. Concerning non-commercial open source activity, at least it shows passion and commitment to the field of profession, but if the boss will really be glad with it just depends... On my first job, I had the contract altered to allow my personal shareware site. I've now quit the shareware idea since it is impossible to combine a full-time job, a family and maintaining the shareware.

I guess saying you want to work on your own projects may be the worst thing you could ever say. A manager wants full dedication. You might be physically at his location, staring at a screen of his code, but thinking how to solve a problem on your own project. Are you spending your time on his or on your project? Most contracts I have had expressly forbid personal projects and some even go so far as claiming the right on any patents or inventions you may have during the period you work for them. Passion, Dedication, Commitment and Patronage are the gems that contractors are looking for.
