#1866 accepted enhancement

Add a basic "suggest an edit" workflow to the handbooks plugin

Reported by: DrewAPicture Owned by: DrewAPicture
Milestone: Priority: normal
Component: Handbooks Keywords: needs-ui


We've talked about this quite a bit in the context of DevHub where User Contributed Notes are occasionally used as a feedback mechanism. Basically, we need a way for docs consumers to report problems or suggest edits of published documentation on .org.

The initial proposal would be to build or use something akin to Post Forking on the front-end of handbooks and eventually other places like DevHub or HelpHub.

Personally I don't think an MVP has to be a complete solution, it mostly needs to cover the rift drawn between moving away from the Codex where any user could edit anything to the now largely closed systems on .org.

I think starting with the handbooks would be the way to go.

I love the idea! Does anyone has a idea how to realize it? Or do you need first a UI?
