[Migrated] Smarter edit summaries
Open, Needs TriagePublic


If I understand how edit summaries work currently in AWB, if I change something either by directly editing the text of the article or by double clicking a line in diff, AWB uses just the default edit summary, not specific changes, because the user might have undid them. I think it would be better, if the edit summary would be smarter, so if AWB suggest two fixes and I undo one of them, the edit summary would still contain the other. @Svick 23:35, 21 December 2009 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure implementing this won't be easy, but I think it could be done in the long term.

I think it should be doable. Certainly is in no shape or form easy.

Sometimes when I have undone a change, I forget to revise the edit summary accordingly. It sure would be nice if it were updated automatically. It would probably be easier to implement if these automatic updates would work only if the user hasn't already altered the edit summary for a specific list item.
