comment Is version history really sacred or is it better to rebase?
@DanLyons I'm curious how you found this question and answer, given that both were posted several days ago. I don't mind that you downvoted something you disagree with, but I do find it odd that you, Pete, and Martin Geisler each cast your first-ever downvote against this in the span of 24 hours. Was this answer linked somewhere?

comment Where do you turn for code base improvement on a multi-project scale?
This is a really odd way to phrase your question. Are you trying to gauge the market potential for starting a business in this space?

comment Efficient Bus Loading
This sounds like the knapsack problem, which is NP-hard. In practice, your search space for a given route should be pretty small.
