We've moved contributor-facing articles into a new product called "Contributors". We don't want this product to show up on so we've marked it "invisible". However, the show-for doesn't work on invisible products. Can we change it so that it does?
This would result in the showfor controls including extra OS selectors and product selectors on articles that are marked as being both in the invisible product and the visible products. This might be fine. It might be really confusing.

If the above is ok, it's a simple change, it's just one if statement in the template.
OS: Mac OS X → All
Hardware: x86 → All

If we moved an article out of a visible product and kept it only in the invisible product, would there be any issues?

Either way, it's fine with me.
Yeah, that would work.
