Collaborative editing #91
One of the questions I get asked most is how could teams work on the same project documentation. I tell them that they should use GitHub, Etherpad, etc., but really this should be built into the platform. For example, the default page content could be a blank Etherpad, if a default provider is configured.
The technical issue is overwriting of project data if people tried to edit simultaneously. Building in a wiki with versioning or a multiuser editor would be the way forward. Page locking and allowing team members to edit would be a midway solution.
