How to handle points in the following scenario:
We have a story set to 4 points, because the team believes that the amount of work is 4 points in total. To be able to complete this story, two people with their special knowledge, needs to work together on that item.
This does not that the first person will do the first half, then the next person will do the second half, they will have to do all of the four points together, by pair programming for instance.
It seems unfair to say that if both persons have 8 points each in a sprint, we can fit four 4 point stories in. Since both will be working together, only 2 four point stories will fit.
How to handle this? Should the points of the story be increased or should the peoples capacity be lowered somehow?
