Work Migration Index

Work goes through these phases:

  • Drafts - Not really a phase. Drafts of new wiki pages may be created in any way. Nothing is tracked. When they are ready to be tested, they will be entered into Authoring.
  • The Authoring phase - Each author has their own workspace to work on pages from either Drafts or Production and are submitted for Review from here.
  • The Review phase - Pages & resources submitted by authors will be reviewed by the admin team in the Review phase. Once the team approves of the page & its resources, it will be moved into the Staging phase.
  • Regarding the remaining phases, how they operate depends on the number of admins that are tending to the wiki.
    • If there is only one admin, that admin should update the wiki very carefully, preserving master copies of the new & updated pages & resources and making all updates in one action or at least very quickly, so the wiki never appears inconsistent to readers.
    • If two or three admins exist, the procedure to update the wiki with the new or updated pages & resources should be coordinated for the same reason as above, but this can be done informally if there is agreement between them as to steps to be performed.
    • If there are more than three admins, the steps mentioned above & detailed below should be formally in place, so that all are coordinated & in agreement as the process takes place.

  • The Staging phase - In this phase, the admins archive these master copies of wiki pages & resources.
Then they will prepare them for releasing them to group pages & their resources such that interdependent pages will later be deployed as a unit; the information for this will come mainly from the authors, but maybe also from reviewers. It's not necessary for pages that are not interdependent with other pages to be grouped.
