comment How to avoid churn when you are defining a schema while others are trying to program against it
How much time elapses between schema changes and implementations of the changes in the code? How often do you all talk? In my experience, churn is a necessary evil in situations like this, but there are some processes or environmental changes that could be put in place to help mitigate the evil (depending on what your environment is like already).

comment How to deal tasks that are probably not user stories but still need to get done?
This answer matches what I was going to write. Our backlog contains many developer-only issues that get prioritized like anything else in the sprint, so that we do not have a bunch of technical debt floating around. Some of these are written by the dev team as they see fit to add them, and some are written by me as they get mentioned. If there's an internal need for everything to be a formal story, then try using "the system" as a user... (I'm not a big fan of story format for its own sake).

comment Building a site with internalization support
Are you locked into accomplishing i18n and l10n via database changes only, or are you able to take advantage of i18n & l10n via other aspects of your application framework (e.g. POT files, YAML files, other appropriate methods, etc)?
