Hook 'EditFilterMerged' should be called after 'force edit summary' preference is enforced
OpenPublic

Description

See e.g. [http://de.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Spezial:Missbrauchsfilter-Logbuch&wpSearchFilter=4]: There is a log entry
:"2009-06-16T21:30:44: 90.136.148.123 [...] triggered filter 4, performing the action "edit" on [[:de:Stempeltechnik]]. Actions taken: none; [...]".
Although rule #4 does not disallow changes (it just logs them), you can't see the change of [[:de:Stempeltechnik]], when you have a look at [[:de:special:contributions/90.136.148.123]]. So what happened there? I gave some more of these examples at [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_talk:Werdna/Archive_1#63364096679].

When a user is given a warning they must click save a second time in order to save the edit. If they don't do this, the edit is not saved, so nothing will happen.

(batch change)

Minor bugs that nevertheless need looking into

(In reply to comment #2)

of course, i know that. the rule i'm talking about does not give a warning and does not disallow edits, it just should log them.

For some reason the check for 'force edit summary' is after the hook that AbuseFilter uses.

This option is on by default on de.wikipedia.org — so I'll bet that's what happened.

Unassigning from me, adding some CCs to get wider feedback on whether it should be moved.
