Your points 1 through 5 are my top five too. I'd add a point 0, though. "Use test-driven development for all new features."

If you don't do that, you'll fall further and further behind. Fortunately, many new features — in mature applications — touch and refine existing code.

[MidLifeXis]: Whew - you just saved the free world. <o)
[GotToBTru]: i guess it's a placeholder, the code will only fill it in if there is nothing else to use
[GotToBTru]: but then .. if you have nothing to say, why not say nothing?
