Freeze component updates on ready for dev frames

We use Design System components in Figma. When we hand off frames for development, QA also uses them to verify implementation. As the implementation is happening, we might continue working on the project, making additions or changes to the design. While that happens, some master components might change.

As we want to keep the number of files for each project to a minimum, we work on the handoff file on a ‘work in progress’ page. This means that if we update our component library (pull the updates for the design system library) or make changes to any master components used in the file, that will automatically update those components in ‘ready for dev’ frames too. If we detach the components, so that they don’t get updated, then we lose the opportunity to add properties through annotations. So that’s a bummer… It would be awesome if with the ‘ready for dev’ toggle we could also freeze the component updates (meaning prevent them from happening)
