Revamping user comments at

Possible mentor: Philip Olson

This task involves rethinking how we handle user comments at This is mainly (only, currently) done within the PHP manual but it could leak into other areas like at

The first task involves defining what a user note is (or should be). Is an example that happens to use strlen() a fine user note for the strlen() documentation? Are examples even appropriate user notes? Is the current moderation system working? Many other questions will arise.


There has been some discussion.



Notes about the current system

The current system was written in the 90's, and contains files spread out in several places throughout the PHP project.
