Make it possible for the AbuseFilter to check change tags
Open, Stalled, Needs TriagePublic

Description

Sometimes, it might be useful to limit an AbuseFilter to only consider edits that are being made with a particular Special:Tag, or to exclude edits that have a certain tag. However, it seems that the AbuseFilter can't "see" the tags.

Filters can add tags. Doesn't this create the same chicken-and-egg problem that has already been described in T53421? Or am I completely misunderstanding what this task is about?

I guess the main problem here is that, when filters are executed, no tags have been chosen, since they're added after the edit is saved. This means that such a change would at least require major changes in core.

Per above, this is not currently feasible.
