From this link I assert that a feature is a set of backlog items, but what is an epic supposed to be?

The general consensus is that:

  • Product backlog Item is something that can be delivered in a single sprint.
  • Feature is something that can't be delivered in a single sprint, but that can be delivered in a single release.
  • Epic is something that transcends releases.
  • Theme is a cross cutting concern.

Theme is generally implemented as a tag in TFS and VSTS.

This is a practice that is in line with Scrum Framework, Nexus Framework, and SAfE methodology.
