  1. Great stuff guys! I greatly appreciate your videos. My only question is, do you approach the contribution on an atomic level? How do you work on a request when a feature designer has a project in which they need to create a new component and enhance / update, maybe, 3 more. Do you approach this as all separate requests (or proposals)? If so, how can you make this more "designer friendly"? Or do you measure the amount of work (or cost) all the changes will have together? Hope my question makes sense! haha. Thanks
