      In our distributed environment, similar to yours, we couldn't make sense
      of things until we realised that what we had was 3 colocated teams
      rather than 1 distributed team. Once we accepted that reality things
      fell into place a bit easier. Might not apply in your situation though.

      ... I have never been in that situation, but if I were, I would seriously think about distributed pair programming. Cheers, Ilja

        I have never been in that situation, but if I were, I would seriously
        think about distributed pair programming.
