RE: [scrumdevelopment] Scheduling Defect Fixes
- I was replying to George's email when I capitalised it, Ron. I wasn't always directly addressing your emails. And you last 4 emails arrived at sometime this evening (my time) and this discussion has been going on for more than a week.
And if you perceive 'intense bitterness' in my words, then I can assure you your perception is incorrect.
So ... have we arrived at some mutually acceptable suggestions, albeit not entirely in agreement in the details?
I do hope so!

Although, this is not Twitter. I really want to do a +1.>>It (and the length of this thread) is a great illustration of why I recommend that teams not get too wrapped up in estimation. They start looking for numerical precision, and that starts consuming the energy that could be put toward accomplish goals.
Echoes my thoughts completely. Won't have been able to put it better myself.
