๐Ÿšฒ Bikeshedding

Bikeshedding means talking (or even arguing) about a small detail instead of a larger issue at hand. If you imagine building a house and having a bike shed outside, it would be akin to angsting over the color and fun name for the bike shed instead of working on actually finishing the house. At the end of the day, you won't have a place to live because you were lost in details that didn't matter.

In the wild

If you take a look at sourcecred, there are several instances of a mention of bikeshedding. Here is an example from @decentralion:

I'm approving this change because it is timely and needed, and because as a rule, we should avoid bikeshedding as a reason to withhold approval.

In the above statement, they recognize that scrutinizing details can delay approving changes, and given the urgency and need of the change, are pointing out that this should be avoided.
