We have this already. Top right corner, "Improve this page". People are using the feature occasionally.

My first experience with this:

1) Seems to work well enough initially, if you can do without a preview.

2) Then the request comes to rebase to stable [1]. There is no web interface for that, so I followed friendly instructions from the reviewer and created a new PR by hand by clicking through github and redoing the changes. Not so smooth but doable if you have been on github before.

3) Then the PR needs to be rebased again because of merge conflicts, introduced by another PR [2]. Reluctant to close the PR and correcting the mistakes a third time in a new PR, I decided to download a local clone and merge locally. Git not being part of my daily routines, that was as smooth as I feared it would be (not at all).

Fixing these small documentation errors took more than an hour of my time. I just hope the PR can be merged before it needs rebasing again ;-)
