[Discuss] php dev's code with warnings and notices

Web development is a ghetto or even, still, the wild wild west. A properly
configured and developed web site with no warning would probably only
serve static web pages. If you log nothing, you miss important errors and
warnings, if you log more, you will get stupid errors and warnings.

The real issue is the cause of the errors and warnings. Some are
important, and some, simply are not.

For what it is worth, as the new senior guy, ask why you shouldn't be
worried by the errors. See if they are aware of them and understand what
they are before you cast judgment.
