comment Are Frequent Complicated Merge Conflicts A Sign of Problems?
@MichaelT The code base is for our automated test code base. We're about to start work on a new addition to our project which will likely need some parallel development for a bit. Hence the discussion of feature-branches vs others.

Great description of a good Git workflow, but this doesn't quite answer my question.

You could, for sure. But keeping it the "standard" way fits in well with general arithmetic (0 + 1 = 1, not 0 + 1 = 0).

comment How to ensure a project 100% tested?
Why is anything "less than 100%" intolerable? Does missing an obvious spelling mistake in some documentation code count as less than 100% tested?

comment Error handling - Should a program fail on errors or silently ignore them
@whatsisname I think you may want to think about your definition of "error" in that case. Errors in data received aren't the same thing as errors in the structure and execution of a software program.

comment Is there a reason that tests aren't written inline with the code that they test?
+1 for pointing out using test frameworks. I can't imagine using a good test framework concurrently with production code.
