Well he's assistand-director (not sure it's the right term), though
still doing some programming, so I can't just go and ask him questions
from the top of my head. But there can be no doubt that our company's
practices were approved, if not heavily influenced, by him, and by our
previous (now retired) director, also a former programmer. So let me
tell you how we do some things relevant to this discussion:

It's normal to keep integration specs, schemas etc. from other
projects open, without copying them under the project tree. In fact,
making local copies of some files is explicitly forbiden - I can't say
more than that, for obvious reasons.

'tis a practice for each developer to compile the modules (s)he is
currently responsible for with debug info, and everything else without.
And when developing new functionality, it's often initially under a
#define, fully compiled and running only for the respective developers.
Both things are managed with the project files, so they are under a
separate backup plan, not source control.

As you can see, your views are not universal. Please don't ask me any
specific questions, and there's also no need for suggestions about
improving out practices.
