Bot edits should be auto-flagged as checked/sighted when former revision was flagged
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

Author: Wiki.Melancholie

Description:
This might be controversial, but bot edits (of those bots that have a bot flag ;-) should be auto-flagged as checked/sighted!
Most bot edits (putting interwikis) would just demand more (unneeded) work.

If a bot has a flag, that bot is trusted and is not checked for every single edit!

This requires $wgGroupPermissions['bot']['autoreview'] = true;

I don't image/category/template flagging was supposed to be enabled.

Bah, wrong bug.

If this is based on the bot scripts, can't that be abused in any (other) way?
[bot token?]

Does this feature really work properly? See bug 14029, comment 1.
