Annotation of wikisrc/wiki/todo/let_non-developers_contribute_content.mdwn, revision 1.3
1.3 ! wiki 1: [[tron]] suggests that non-developers should be able to post content to a staging area, to be approved (possibly after editing) by developers. [[schmonz]] likes this idea a lot.
1.1 wiki 2:
1.3 ! wiki 3: _For non-developers using [[anonymous CVS|wiki/todo/push_wikisrc_to_anoncvs]]_: submit a diff to `netbsd-docs@`.
1.1 wiki 4:
1.3 ! wiki 5: _For non-developers using a web browser_: the ikiwiki discussion subpage and/or [[!iki plugins/comments desc="comments plugin"]] may point toward the solution.
! 7: One of the reasons we [[chose ikiwiki|wiki/todo/choose_wiki_software]]
! 8: is the ability to edit via CVS
! 9: directly, as well as via the web. As long as every wiki editor is a
! 10: developer, controlling access consistently is simple. In order to open
! 11: up wiki editing to non-developers, we have to think carefully about
! 12: both the CVS case and the web case.
! 14: In the short term, to start getting non-developers involved, I intend
! 15: to [[push wikisrc to anoncvs]] and
! 16: [[hook up wiki commits to www-changes@]].
! 18: In the long term, ikiwiki has a few ready-made web authentication
! 19: options (a locally managed user database, OpenID, and HTTP auth), and
! 20: if they don't suffice for some reason, it's easy enough to write an
! 21: auth plugin. The hard part is deciding the workflow: where is a
! 22: sensible place for non-developers to make their edits, and what is a
! 23: sensible way for developers to review and "bless" the changes? Two
! 24: ikiwiki-native possibilities are listed above.
! 26: Ideas welcome! Edit this page and add your comments. --[[schmonz]]
