comment Should the story points of stories created after splitting a story add up to the number of story points of that story?
@Nab: the whole point of agile is that a complexity change should raise an alarm. You've learned your estimates are off. That is useful information for everyone. You now have a more accurate estimate of how much work is left, which will allow you to more accurately predict the end date, or allow you to know how much work you have to leave on the table in order to meet a pre-defined date.

"that could mean in practical terms that the overall complexity of the project changed.": The whole point of agile is to expect change, and be prepared to deal with it.

comment Scrum Daily meeting: Punctuality over Full team presence?
I guess I wasn't clear enough. I didn't mean a different time every day. I meant that the team has to pick the earliest time that they are all available, and then they should use that same time every day.

comment Is testable code better code?
I think there's a difference between "testable code" and "code [twisted] to suit the testing framework". I'm not sure where I'm going with this comment, other than to say I agree that "twisted" code is bad, and "testable" code with good interfaces is good.

comment Should points of tech debt be counted in a team's velocity?
@stuperuser: There are (at least) two ways to look at sprint points: as a committment, or as a projection of what you think can be accomplished. Since agile is not just about completing work, but completing it at a sustainable pace, calling it a commitment (which implies the team will work extra hours if necessary to make the commitment) isn't in the spirit of agile. Agile is more about planning than promising.
