Re: GitLab migration


As far as I know, there is not fine-grained access control on Wiki pages.
The only way to do something like this to create a separate project just
for a public wiki.  Then a limited set of people would have permissions to
copy things from the public wiki to the main KiCad project wiki.

To be honest, that sounds less useful than the current status quo, which is
to use Google Docs for pre-implementation design collaboration.
I know not everyone likes Google or wants to create an account, and I'd be
happy to try alternatives that have the same functionality.  But, I think
it's important to have similar functionality: A few people have access to
edit, and more people (i.e. the public) can only make suggestions or
