Project statement

In order to make it easier for core writers, occasional contributors, and the development teams to better collaborate together, we need an improved system for requesting, managing, handling, and recording reviews of content, as well as for supporting "publish after review" documents, which are only visible to the general public once the content has passed review.

This feature will support our efforts to improve the quality of our content by making it easier to get content reviewed. It will also support our initiative to improve collaboration between the MDN docs team and the engineers developing the software.

This project proposal covers this system and its requirements.

This project is based on bug 665719.
