Rajko, first of all, thanks a lot for all your efforts in reviewing FlaggedRevs and providing the showcase page at http://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Extension_FlaggedRevs In the meantime I'm all for it (the extension) and think we should go forward with this when implementing the new instance. While the functionality of the extension is clear to me in general I have a question (just to be 100% sure - this is important for the Wiki Forum I currently take care of by discussing it with the forums team): Let's assume we have a "Quality page" in place. Is it right that an edit to that page will automatically result in a new "Draft page" that exists side-by-side with the "Quality page" while the "Quality Page" is still shown to the user and the new "Draft page" is accessible via link? I mean that way the author of the new "Draft page" that got automatically created by doing an edit to the "Quality page" may link his draft at forums.o.o to get feedback once he thinks that his draft is ready for the reviewing/approving process (candidate to replace the sighted version, i.e. the "Quality page") Thanks, R 2009/11/16 Rajko M. <email@example.com>:

I created wiki page about FlaggedRevs, that is just illustration of few functions. As I use the latest of both Mediawiki and FlaggedRevs, there seems to be a bug that under circumstances doesn't show any mark, for any user, but that part I didn't investigate further. The issue appear when page is edited, not changed. but saved. The history of the article will show information about stable revision correctly, just public mark in a top right corner is not present.
I'm definitely for this extension, as it solves few problems at once: that there are pending reviews.
- marking quality of the article public so that every viewer can see it
- everybody can see any revision, as stable is just presented by default, but users can look at draft using top line of links or link within mark
- preventing inexperienced users to mess the article without anyone noticing, because users with editor and reviewer status are notified when they log in
The extension is very configurable, so above is just few words about default configuration that seems to fit very well our needs.
For real wiki with applied extension that may have different configuration ( I didn't check that one) you can see: http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Main_Page
