comment Functional or non-functional requirement?
I'd argue "The application is written in C#." is a constraint, not a functional requirement, since it doesn't describe the behaviour of the system but ascribes a limitation to the solution space.

comment Functional or non-functional requirement?
also, non-func could be broken into "development" (developers care, e.g. maintainability) and "operational" (users care, e.g. usability) qualities

comment Functional or non-functional requirement?
Nice! What thing I'd add is that functional requirements need not deal only with interactions with the external environment however (a related concept are "interface requirements" with other systems). A counterexample for this would be "The system must index the database of users every 60 minutes". This is clearly internal.

Thanks, that's also feasible as long as the bug doesn't affect feature A.

Hmm, seems like that would be best. There might be merge conflicts in feature A but I think that's inevitable here.

comment Better word for Optional Requirements?
good descriptions, but I'm still a bit peeved at the phrase - either something is required or it isn't. I think we've made "requirement" into a separate entity meaning "formal client need"...
