comment Coding style issue: Should we have functions which take a parameter, modify it, and then RETURN that parameter?
To be more specific, is it OK to mutate the parameter and return it?

comment How to deal with no code reviews in my new place when I come from that practice?
@CA55CE37 This is a question about software development practices and workplace culture. Programmers is the right place to ask, not Code Review or Code Review Meta.

comment Ship of Theseus applied to GPL - Can I relicense my program if I replace all of the derivative parts?
I think that this answer is correct for the particular situation described in the question. However, in general, the answer would be a judgement call made by comparing the original and final code. If we accept the answer that any editing is virally tainted, then we would conclude that any project based on the GNU Hello template would have to be GPL, even if you swapped out all of the functionality.

comment Why don't developers make installation wizards on linux?
Jörg's point still stands. Users are just conditioned to tolerate a deficiency in Windows. Linux package managers are a technically superior solution. Still, nothing prevents an independent developer from posting some RPMs on a web page. Users should be able to download and double-click to open it.

comment What is the purpose of a Code Review
@gnat It emphasizes a different aspect of the points raised in other answers. Have you ever been puzzled by your own code that you wrote six months ago? Code review lets you accelerate that process. If your colleague is puzzled by your code, you can still clarify it while the problem is still fresh in your memory.

comment Creating New Scripts Dynamically in Lua
The question of readability may be premature, as you have placeholder names everywhere — which also makes this question off-topic for Code Review. You have asked a very interesting question, though, so I'm migrating it to Programmers.
