Don't mark edits on unused images work pages as minor
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Take for example https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia:WikiProject_National_Register_of_Historic_Places/Unused_images&action=history . The bot updates this page every once in a while and this edit is marked as minor. As pointed out in https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Wikipedia_talk%3AWikiProject_National_Register_of_Historic_Places&type=revision&diff=678502072&oldid=678499606 : some people filter out minor edits. This update isn't minor and shouldn't be marked like that by the bot. This is only for the work pages. On Commons the total statistics should still be marked as minor.

We have more bots creating these kind of reports on Wikipedia. We should probably apply the same change there too. The change is quite simple: put(..., minorEdit=False) or save(..., minor=False).
