Everything starts with a Merge Request
Overview: Updated the handbook page section "Everything starts with an Issue" to "Everything starts with a Merge Request) and an explanation as to why.
Problem Statement : It's clear GitLab team members are very comfortable with opening issues and driving discussions, but discussions on open issues do not always result in actionable outcomes.
Proposal in this MR : I have updated the handbook to focus more on raising MRs first vs Issues when moving things forward. MRs propose a solution to a problem vs issues that aim to socialize a problem open for discussion. Leading with MRs first enables focused discussion around a proposed solution to the problem at hand which hopes to streamline processes.
Consideration : May need to update blog post on why we start with issues first
