An article can be assigned to one or more responsible editors. The editors responsible for an article can be seen in the status list of the article. When the menu is collapsed, only one of them will be displayed.
Only those users with the relevant permission,
responsibleeditors-takeresponsibility, in the namespace can be chosen as responsible editors.
To assign responsibility for an article to an editor, the user has to have the permission
responsibleeditors-changeresponsibility or already have been named as a responsible editor him or herself.
