Block log entries in Special:RecentChanges should have link to unblock blocked user
Open, LowestPublic

Description

On Special:RecentChanges, if I'm an admin, block log entries look like:

# (Block log); 22:36 . . Foo (Talk | contribs | block) blocked Somebody (Talk | contribs) with an expiry time of indefinite (account creation disabled, cannot edit own talk page) (Comment about block)

I would expect there to be an "unblock" link in the (Talk | contribs) links for Somebody. So the line should look like:

# (Block log); 22:36 . . Foo (Talk | contribs | block) blocked Somebody (Talk | contribs | unblock) with an expiry time of indefinite (account creation disabled, cannot edit own talk page) (Comment about block)

I thought this was the case in 1.16, but can't remember for sure.

Removing good first task as the feedback on the previous patch attempt implies that it's not that easy actually. Feel free to readd good first task once more information has been provided in the task description how and in which files a new contributor should approach this feature request.

Readding easy. Looking at gerrit commit, i dont think difficulty was the reason it was abandoned
