comment What is the role of the lead developer in an agile team?
@Brian making architecture decisions would be a story in a sprint, probably one earmarked for a specific member but otherwise the same as any other story. It should be subjected to peer review like any other story. The time argument is bullshit, if you happened to miss X or decided to try Z that everyone else on the team isn't familiar with you WILL spend more time developing as a result, even a full day of arguing about design would be insignificant comparatively. A simple meeting/review to say "I chose A because X,Y,Z." would likely take an hour and get just made it a collaborative effort.

comment Understanding branching strategy/workflow correctly
I would recommend at least reading through some of Microsoft's material about branching strategies, its TFS focused but the basic ideas are all the same.

comment What should a proper Ready for Sprint definition contain?
@logansama getting stories ready for sprint is more extra crap you have to do to get real value added, the value you need to show is delivering completed stories in a timely manner and iterating quickly on those not matching what the client wanted

comment Check-list to avoid vendor lock-in?
@Giorgio because support contracts are more important in the business world than ability to change, once a system is working that fact part A can be swapped with part X is irrelevant because no one will do that until there is a gun held to their head.
