Link log-entry related enotif emails to log-entry and not just to user page
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Hi. There are two kinds of watchlist email messages. If some page was edited, there are three links: current version, edit diff, all edits from this one diff. But if the change was in logger (user was blocked, new rights and so on), there is only one link - to the user page. It does not help at all. We even do not know what was the change. Could you please add a second link - to logger page with this user as target? We can see all the changes there. Thank you very much.

Event Timeline

Example email text excerpt (= 'Actual Results' section) very welcome so anyone could try to find the text and related code...

What is a "logger page"? Any URL/link to share?

For example, I get this message:

The Meta page User:I JethroBT (WMF)/IEG 2015 Targets has been changed on September 30, 2016 by I JethroBT (WMF), see https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/User:I_JethroBT_(WMF)/IEG_2015_Targets for the current revision.

It could be:
