1. Nexus guide mentions- The number, frequency, duration and attendance of Refinement is based on the dependencies and uncertainty inherent in the Product Backlog.

Does this mean , there is no rule that only representatives from each team should be present during refinement? It can be either representatives or all team members?

Also, unlike Nexus Sprint Planning or Nexus Daily Scrum, why the refinement meeting is simply mentioned as Refinement in Nexus guide?


2. As per the Nexus guide- Refinement meeting helps the Scrum Teams forecast which team will deliver which Product Backlog items,

So, suppose we have identified team A will work on  User story 1 , 2 , 3, 4, 5 and 6 .

In which bucket / sprint backlog these user stories will go after this identification?

Team A maintains Sprint Backlog which contains user stories of current sprint and not future sprint.

So, my question is does each also has it's own product backlog ?
