Minor split of a paragraph create large diffs that are very hard to read: example.
Who would benefit
All people reviewing articles, but also all those newcomers that wait for their edits to be approved. Less work doing review = quicker reviews.
Either somehow improve the diffing algorithm or allow users to click on different sections and re-diff them... Or maybe allow user to change wikicode on both sides and re-run diff on new wikicode.
Time, expertise and skills required
- e.g. Hackathon, GSOC, Outreachy, etc.
