Some way to avoid the "Publish others' changes" step?

I'm loving collaborative editing, but I feel like the publish step is an obstacle. Most people feel obligated to ask the person whose changes they're publishing if it's okay. 

So the workflow looks like:

  1. Edit
  2. Click Publish
  3. Ask people in Slack if you can publish their stuff
  4. Wait for responses
  5. Publish

That's much less enjoyable than the Google Docs approach.

Could there be some way to say, as an editor, "I'm done with my changes and you don't need to prompt anyone about them?"

I realize this could mean your changes never get published, if the other editors never end up clicking the button. 

A more complicated option would be something like, "Publish my changes eventually." And the page would be auto-published a certain amount of time after there's no activity.

Better thoughts?

That possibility is not there right now. But you could suggest something like that as a feature request at jira.atlassian.com.
