It should be possible to add annotations to a revision, especially for its external provenance
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Sometimes a revision is a copy from an external page that is freely licensed, but still require attribution. It should be possible to add this in a structured way, also after the revision is saved. This could be some way of annotations for the revision, but it could also be done by a simple interactive logging facility. It should not be a tag, that is more of a temporal tool. However this is implemented it should be listed as part of the history page, so attribution of the external page is clearly stated together with other credits for the page.

An example of an external site that requires attribution is Store norske leksikon, with clarifications on their page fri gjenbruk ("Free reuse").

This is related to T196416: Log entries for a page should be shown together with revision history for the page

I am not sure, but I wonder if this is a type of annotation, and that the types should be a limited set where one entry is "provenance".

Also note the difference between annotating a specific revision (the change) and annotating the rendered content.
