I have entered a submission in the indicated part of website - more of an activist text so not realy ripe for formal review. I think what is needed is critique and comments though.
And a way to do this properly. There are mainly these ways which come
to my mind:
1. Use the comments feature
Plone has a comment feature. At the end of each page you can add a
comment. This allows replies to comments also. However, this makes
it hard to refer to a particular part of the reviewed text. Also
AFAICS comments are not subscribeable so new comments are not sent
2. Add a `Talk` page
We could add a `Talk` page to each submission like the `Talk` page
in Wikipedia. Again it is a bit difficult to refer to particular
3. Make comments in the submission
This would mean that the original submission is edited by the
reviewers. Could be done but clutters the original submission. In
any case a reviewer must leave a signature or so.
4. Make comments in a copy of the submission
We could simply copy a submission to another page and ask for
comments there. That would leave the original intact but allows for
comments in the appropriate places. Again reviewers need to leave a
signature so it is clear who made what comment.
I think option 4 is the best one.
The more I think about it the more I believe that responses, dialogue between authors, joint statements etc are what we can contribute to the peer production discussion, on top of peer reviewed papers natch!

That is part of what I addressed by

Group subscription to a subtree is somewhat difficult - I'm just
asking the developer of the notification tool how he meant his
However, it is easy to set up a fake account with the email address of
this list and this way subscribe this whole list to change
notifications. I just did this so changes are at least sent here [#]_.

like this should not be done by a mailing list. But at the moment
it is probably better this way.
