If you’re working with other people, there’s definitely a chance that you can have too many commits that make the history difficult to read. For example:
* Fix typo 'Dorp' to 'Drop' * Fix typo 'fucntion' to 'function' * Update marketing copy 'buy now' to 'install now' * Update marketing copy to 'Now only $59!' to 'Now only $49!' * Fix typo 'featrues' to 'features'
