comment Does it make sense to use the term “Space Leak” with regard to Java?
+1 for "You can be equally clear without using this "new" terminology." If it walks like a memory leak and quacks like a memory leak...

comment How do I create my own Objective-C to Swift converter?
@Tiper: The original AST construction takes place in the parser. There are plenty of open-source tools to help with that, called parser generators. Unfortunately, they're likely to be of limited help to you because parser generators often don't do well with context-sensitive grammars. But do some searching around and see if you can find a way to make it work with a parser generation tool like ANTLR. Semantic analysis and code generation are the real meat of the compiler process; you'll have to do that on your own.

comment If you decide that branching is a bad thing, then why use Git over SVN?
@nanny Committing vs. pushing is a distinction without a difference, and artificially creating such a difference in DVCS is not a "benefit"; it's an irritation that does nothing useful in return for making your job more complicated.
