Although publishing directly to namespace has shown to work well as the default (T76618), some users request ways to publish to their user namespace. Although this is currently supported (a) by changing the translation title or (b) through a dialog when an article may be overwritten, we can surface a bit more those options.
This ticket proposes to include a settings menu next to the publish button (e.g., a cog icon) that provides the following options:
- **Publish in user namespace/main namespace.** This will adjust the article title accordingly for the article to be published in the right place.
- **Include a translation template.** For those communities where translations are required to be marked with a template, this can avoid some additional steps editing the published article.
- **Custom edit summary.** Allows to customise the edit summary to be used when publishing. This would allow editors to indicate their contribution is part of an editathon/campaign [[ https://tools.wmflabs.org/hashtags/search/wikiarte?lang=ca | by using a hashtag ]]. The user contributed text may appear after the default one if the default is needed for attribution (i.e., point to the original article translated).
