How to contribute

Design systems continue to be a relatively new concept and we should expect the practices around them to remain in flux for years to come. For this reason, Lean Design System was designed as an open and collaborative project from the get-go. I would like to invite everyone to share their own views and experiences by creating new branches or entirely new forks of the methodology. I will do my best to review all submissions (i.e. pull requests) and integrate them into the main repository as quickly as possible.
