Anybody who claims that story points aren't time estimates is lying to themselves. I have _never_ not seen them translated to time. If you use them to decide what to put in a Sprint, you're doing exactly that. If you must estimate, just use time & get it over with. Why the code?


"Story Points were invented to obfuscate duration so that certain managers would not pressure the team over estimates. Using elapsed time is probably better [..]. Slicing stories small [..] provides better commitment [..] and less political pressure."
