[SPIKE] Define the editing contexts initial check will be made available within
Open, Needs TriagePublicSpike


This task involves the work of deciding what editing contexts the initial check the Editing Team is developing will be available within.

Where "editing contexts" means: creating a new article, editing a specific section, or editing an entire article.

Open questions

  • 1. What – if any – editing contexts beyond those listed below will we need to decide whether the initial check should be made available within?
    • Full-page editing (visual, desktop)
    • Section editing (visual, desktop + mobile)
    • New article creation (visual, desktop + mobile)
    • Namespaces (e.g. main, draft, user, etc.)
  • 2. What editing contexts will we need to make the initial edit check available within?


  • Answers to all Open questions are documented
  • Edit Check measurement plan is updated to ensure the metrics we plan to gather reflect the editing interfaces we expect Edit Check to initially be made available within


@nayoub raised this question in the Editing Team's 30 November team meeting in response to him positing that creating a new article might vary significantly enough to expanding an existing one that the two would warrant different user experiences.
