Ok, so maybe I don't have the business practices and team management
included yet, but maybe I am going to ;). But based on the 'Core
Practices', I would say that this qualifies as XP:
Core Practices: Simple Design, Pair Programming, Test-Driven
Development, Design Improvement, Continuous Integration, Collective
especially when you consider the focus on 'Pair Programming'.
Man has survived hitherto because he was too ignorant to know how to
realize his wishes.
Now that he can realize them, he must either change them, or perish.
