Title[edit]

Title: Editorial control process? Editorial oversight and control? FT2 (Talk | email) 02:58, 8 January 2007 (UTC)

About Larry Sanger's phrase[edit]

"Given enough eyeballs, all errors are shallow" - ????

A mob of several thousand monkeys have a lot of eyeballs, too.

Questionable article name[edit]

My Websters gives the definition of oversight that is inappropriate to this page name before the appropriate one:

oversight |ˈōvərˌsīt|
noun
1 an unintentional failure to notice or do something :
he said his failure to pay for the tickets was an oversight | was the mistake due to oversight?
2 the action of overseeing something :
effective oversight of the financial reporting process.

And that was my first reaction when I saw it in the section of WP:About pointing here. As there is such a straightforward and unambiguous replacement, supervision with exactly the same roots, would it not be more auspicious to replace the darn word in the page name and all things leading here?

Flagged revisions[edit]

There is a sentence which reads "The control known as flagged revisions is being rolled out as of 2007". Is it still being rolled out? Has the roll-out stalled or has the rollout been completed? Could someone in the know take a look at this? I am very unfamiliar with this whole area of quality management within WP so don't want to offer a change myself. Thanks.
