I wonder how many around consider “refactoring” a full fledge activity to consider it and allocate time for it in software project plans?

I have seen people making statements, “let us complete it this way, once it will be done, we will re-factor it” and how many of them then really do it? <smile />

Refactoring a full-time activity, no way!!! I mean it depends!!However, if we have long-term self managed projects and we would keep the maintenance cycles then we have learnt that staying away from it as a full-time activity is a sin. It depends on other factors as well.So considering this fact, if your team members have read "Code Complete and Refactoring* sometimes you don't even have to enforce *refactoring*, it just comes along and type of work doesn't matter at all!!!Good programmers do deviate from management decisions and project plans :-)I think the real question should have been *What if you have applications that have not been *refactored* and you are supposed to provide maintenance cycles and you were not part of the design, then would you take some time off and do it " ?
