There is a discussion going on in the OpenSolaris discussion forum about the process for publishing articles. This page is an attempt to see how a wiki could be used to achieve the stated objectives: having an initial draft which could be reviewed by the community which after a certain period of time, gets published.

Creating an initial draftEdit

Anybody can put up an initial draft of an article. The article is posted for review by putting in the {{draft}} tag at the top of the page. This lists the page in Category:Drafts.

Publishing the final articleEdit

After a certain amount of time has passed from the time the article is posted, for review (say a week), the author can publish the final draft by just removing the {{draft}} tag. If necessary, the article can be protected from further edits. (Not very sure if this is a good idea, though.)
