Scrum and terminology

I was in a discussion today, and I heard someone ask a Scrum Master:  How did you manage the pools

What did he mean when he asked this question.

What does the phrase (manage pools) refer to, and how what would be the options?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Maybe they were discussing the staffing pools, pools where you have prospective staff that is available to join one of the possible multiple scrum teams.
Jessica RigaProducerCommented:
"Pools" isn't an Agile or Scrum specific word, so it's hard to say exactly without knowing more about the context. The person was likely asking about groups of something such as employees, as spravtek suggests, or even assets, defects, or backlogs (i.e., pools of work).
