Cleaning up Diaspora's visual design
I have had some interest recently in polishing up Diaspora's default look and feel. I believe that some minor changes to stylesheets and templates could greatly improve the default user experience of using Diaspora.
My line of inquiry has come to this: at this point, how does one go about proposing visual changes to Diaspora's interface? I feel competent enough in working with the many compartmentalized feature-specific stylesheets, and have some understanding of interface elements in various templates.
Put another way: if I have ideas and can make most of them happen on a branch, what is the ideal review process for submitting a series of changes? Is it better to focus on one set of changes per pull request (ie, "switch box shadows for 1px solid borders?") or is a PR replete with screenshots and multiple commits enough?
I've had some interest in taking a "100 Papercuts" approach here, where minor design squabbles across the UI are listed to be worked on. I'm not 100% sold on the approach, however.
Any thoughts or suggestions on how to go about this?
