comment Minimizability or readability?
Note that there's a bit of a contradiction in " the author doesn't expect the end user to read) be designed so that it takes up as little space as possible, or so that it readable by the end user." as written

comment How to transfer code responsibility to another developer
When you say "the actual steps I have to do seem vague" are you referring to something specific? I didn't see actual steps listed in the question. Or do you mean you only have a vague idea yourself of what to do. It's not entirely clear from the question. Clarification will probably improve answers.

comment When should the programmer's spoken language be used during development?
This is clearly the best answer imho. Documentation like this will largely be for the other people that maintain it (including "the future you"). So write names that you and others are mostly likely to be most comfortable (within a reasonable estimation of the software maintainers geographic location).

comment Managing client-side and server-side validations in one place
yup, different languages and frameworks make this impractical. Not "undoable" because with enough resources it could be done but writting auto converters to and between languages is a HUGE task. Doing it in a reasonable timeframe and then maintaining it as the relevant technologies change would be a lot of work.

comment What is the origin of the negative term “legacy code”
I heard the following definition of legacy code 20 years ago and I've remembered it ever since: legacy code is the code you currently have in production. It has helped my point of view many times.
