Description Angela 2004-09-25 04:15:38 UTC
The Wikimedia Foundation wiki uses a whitelist. Non-approved editors make edits
on Meta and someone with an account copies those across. This is confusing and
time consuming and the two are rarely in synch.

My feature request is to let anyone edit a draft version directly on the
Foundation wiki. This is not displayed to readers until someone on the whitelist
approves the edit.

MediaWiki does not get any moderation system and it is
not part of our .plan. Better to use a content management
system for that.

Comment 3 Angela 2005-07-06 14:25:32 UTC
WONTFIX makes no sense since it's not a bug to fix. It's a feature request. If
someone wants to make it, it can be an extension so I've changed the "Product"
type. I very much doubt "MediaWiki does not get any moderation system" will
remain true for long. What is wrong with leaving it open?
