Type of activity: Pre-scheduled session
Main topic: None
At the October Editing team offsite, we built consensus for an MVP for the real-time collaboration feature of visual editor. If all goes well, that MVP might be mostly done by the dev summit.
So what's the next step?
Building continuity with the offsite. Expanding the community discussing this feature and building broader consensus. Which of the issues deliberately excised from the MVP (for example, T149661) should be in the "next step" of the evolution of this feature?
Current status of the discussion
See the offsite notes for a start.

Some issues left unresolved:
- Is there a user group model? Can we resuscitate WikiProjects? Or do we use AI to suggest collaborators, avoiding all explicit "friends lists" or "wikiproject members".
- We have a basic "report abuse" function, but who patrols for harassment and what tools do they need?
- How are active edit sessions visible? Can you watch edits in real-time in read-only mode to follow a developing story?
- What backend changes should we tackle? Multiple authors? Fine-grained authorship?
