#47596 closed defect (bug) (reported-upstream)

Pre-publish panels is not visible for contributors

In Gutenberg, the pre-publish panel (PluginPrePublishPanel):

Is not displayed (with the panels) for users without publishing capability ('contributor' role etc). So these users see:

It was initially there, but because some unwanted panels were displayed for contributors (see #6729), they somehow decided to entirely remove the pre-publish screen for contributors. Probably by mistake, making this essentially a bug. If not, a major design error, because contributors need tips the most.

I opened a GitHub thread, see #16198. A user suggested PluginPreReviewPanel as an alternative approach.

Contributor users are the ones who need publishing suggestions the most, as they are submitting a post for review, meaning, they are least familiar with the publishing guidelines of the site.

A great example of how the PluginPrePublishPanel can be used for contributors.

Can we fix this bug and have (PluginPrePublishPanel) enabled for contributor users?
