comment Safety-critical software and optimising compilers
Also, consider the real cost of not optimising the code is a bit extra on the hardware budget. It's just not worth the additional risk to save a few bucks on hardware.

For the client side you could look at either 'thread pooling' or a similar caching mechanism. Generally speaking lots of small requests from a mobile device is bad as mobile devices suffer all sorts of latency/bandwidth issues anyway so you want a cache in case the traffic doesn't get through.

comment License key solution in web application, what is the best approach?
There would be no problem having a time-limited licencing system where once the licence expires the app is useless. Plenty of companies do it, big and small - Adobe for one example.

comment Does a licence exist where forking forces the developer to resell it when developer want to redistribute?
This really is the OSI's fault because it really should account for open vs free (beer) - the FSF did the same thing and failed to allow for any distinction between free (to view/examine/modify) and free (cost). Many in the open source community refer to it more correctly as FOSS (Free Open Source Software).

comment How can a community continue support for a product (*not* open source) discontinued by it's owner
I did a little bit of research and in your situation the software has not become an orphaned work (which would allow you to do as you please) while the product is still owned, is being actively developed (even though you don't approve of or intend to use the newer version) and the owners are still in business. They might give you permission or a covenant not to sue for providing maintenance patches though if you asked them.

comment Where should I store test data?
Irrespective of what git holds, have you considered it from the point of view that a full dataset from live data is not a test dataset (designed to test both success and failure states) and that alone may be a strong argument for it to be held outside the repository?

To be honest that just smacks of sour grapes.

@Euphoric +1 - this question might benefit from some code samples to illustrate the points you'd like to make.
