Phabricator is a project/software for doing code review of all sorts.
The FreeBSD documentation tree contains a lot of XML file, which can
be treated as code and subjected to pre-commit review as well.

It doesn't help with converting non-marked-up text to XML form, it's
just a convenient place to post a draft patch and be able to make
line-by-line comments on it that are archived in a useful way.

https://www.phacility.com/phabricator/ seems to be the upstream project's
home page.
