Do you know of tools or projects inside the Wikimedia world that add structure to contribution workflows, that we could learn from? For instance, Hotcat structures the process of adding categories to an article.

@John Broughton -- I'm so glad you showed me that link, because it led me to "moss", the project that automatically spell- and grammar-checks all of English Wikipedia. As @NickK says in this thread, copyediting would be a really great task to give newcomers. But the problem is how to identify where the potential misspellings, grammar mistakes, etc. are. While it seems possible in English, the thing that seems so much harder is how to do it across all the Wikipedia languages. Maybe we could talk to the creator of moss and get their take on how to do it. I will get in touch with them.
I know user Krinkle has a subpage with code that you add to your common file that allows RTRC and I enjoy using it because of the granularity of it while it may not always work because something may have been depreciated and others may not have know it causes things to break. IE parts of Huggle don’t work because something is no longer in place in the back ground or AWK because the spell check was removed from the backend but still advertises it can do it.
