comment Why does git allow you to “change history”?
@LazyBadger I doesn't have to be a mistake. Let's say I have a personal project, which grows into something that others could benefit from. I want to publish that project with its history (mostly) intact but the project also contains some personal information (eg. a poem to a loved one in all header files) Rewriting history helps you cleanup regardless of the intent. For me it's a feature that grows naturally from the distributed nature but it also helps you keeping things private (and maybe ,as an extension, secure)

comment What are the benefits of prefixing function parameter names with p*?
I did know of the phenomena but didn't know that it even had a name. Thanks for pointing to the wikipedia entry on the issue.

That is what I do. Not using a prefix also helps in Eclipse when calling the method. If you built your object tree and name the variables like the parameter names of the method you like to invoke, it works like a charm, but if the parameter names are prefixed this doesn't work.

I didn't see that one. I leave it to a moderator to close this question. Things might have changed though, which I was trying to get at in the question. I for myself see a trend to write present tense because of git. Maybe just reword the question?
