Proving a pattern or component works
The working group review new contributions. They may decide that something else meets the need better. If the working group agree that a pattern or component is needed, it will move through the following stages:
We've seen this problem in an area and it's being peer reviewed by the team and iterated upon. It may change a lot in Experimental. Teams are free to use it in their own prototypes. Please report back any research findings. It should not be used in production.
Components and patterns in Experimental will be regularly reviewed by the working group.
We've seen this pattern or component work consistently in testing and are recommending its use. There will also be evidence of user research to support this.
If you've found a user need and this pattern or component meets it, use this version. On occasion we may recommend a pattern or component due to the need for consistency.
