Allow tasks to be read-only by public
Confirmed, NormalPublicTO DO


We are trying to find ways to keep the discussion focused in some tasks before opening them up for the public contribution.

For that it would be nice if we could restrict the access to reply in some tasks to a subgroup of phabricator users.

Example of tasks we would like to try this system:

This could be used for design tasks as well, where we first have it writable by the module members, and later we open for the public. For example, T69132 got overwhelmed too early by noisy and unfriendly comments.

Since this is a sensitive matter (on our quest to be as open as possible), we would like to restrict this for the mentorship tasks at first, before considering it broad usage.

Maybe this suggestion I'm about to make, someone won't like it, but it doesn't matter,
I have something to say that I think is important.

Don't lock yourself up to be more comfortable, don't be afraid of noise.

People rarely intervene, and when they do it is because they have to suggest something they know well.

This of the Transform object origins design task was something that many users knew well from other environments in which they used it, and some suggestions were initially asked.

Not frightening "of noise", maybe it seems that it makes you lose some time at first, but from brainstorming you always come up with useful tricks and corrections that you miss. People have great respect for you Devs, don't forget it.

Look at the examples of the now fantastic GSoCs Outliner and Custom bevel profiles. they have become masterpieces also thanks to all the suggestions that users have given to devs.

While people rarely intervene in things they don't know, even if they are fascinating ... such as the VR support via openXR.

If you don't want noise here on the development platform, at least create a system that opens a discussion on devtalk automatically and diverts the suggestions of ordinary people there.

Greetings Masters.
