Just like when you're renovating a house, a little communication,
planning and some policies can prevent two or three people from painting
the same wall a different color at the same time. The nice thing about
Git is that the worse case scenario--where two people edited the same
code in some conflicting way--isn't really that big of a problem. You
just need to review and make some decisions.

team/team member is delegated that area of the project, etc.
