Warn on edit summaries containing redlinks
Open, LowPublic

Description

Author: paolo

Description:
In some cases, one may want to enter an edit summary with a redlink, but this is more often the result of a mistake. Since edit summaries cannot be fixed at a later moment, I believe it would be nice to have (as a user preference) an option of being requested confirmation when entering an edit with a summary containing a redlink. This would be similar to the "null summary" check, so that the user could stilll decide to commit the edit anyway.

In some cases, one may want to enter an edit summary with a redlink

Is this basically a request for "templates and links in summaries should be rendered on editing" (hence parsed), as a first step required to warn on redlinks? In that case, this would depend on bug 5019 I guess?
