Pair programming

It's an issue that has, in my opinion, been plaguing JIRA for years - you can't assign multiple people to a backlog item, which is frustrating if you follow XP and do pair programming...and only use JIRA for your board.

Any plans on addressing that?

Is it not a juxtaposition to be championing agile development approaches in next fen, but not natively support a core practice in XP?

Do how do Atlassian's devs use the tool? Do they not pair?

I understand they do do pair-programming at times.  And have a field for "other person in pair alongside owner"

Jira has a core principle that there is one single assignee so there can never be any confusion.  Atlassian have no plans to change that.

If you want to represent both people in a pair, add a field for the other person.
