How is everyone organizing Jira? A project for each product or offering within a product or just a single backlog.

I can’t help but think this is hard to manage.

Anyone else tire of the “plant mom” and “dog dad” me too conversation? It seems to be more frequent.

Undoubtedly someone responds, “what about my plant babies? 🤣”. I don’t want sympathy but I find it childish. Just give us the courtesy of understanding that plants and pets are not the same. Stop “me too’ing”
