Add edit summaries to short description edits
Open, MediumPublicFeature


Feature summary (what you would like to be able to do and where): When editing or adding short descriptions/article descriptions on the Wikipedia-iOS-App-Backlog there is no option to leave an edit summary and it does not provide an automated summary. Either would be nice.

Use case(s) (list the steps that you performed to discover that problem, and describe the actual underlying problem which you want to solve. Do not describe only a solution): On a Wikipedia article clicking the pen to edit, selecting “Edit article description”, making the edit, and selecting “Publish description.” There is no option to leave an edit summary and the automated summary just leaves a minor edit tag.

Benefits (why should this be implemented?): Either an automated summary (something like “article description” or “short description”) or the ability for me to enter my own summary before publishing would improve the information available to other editors.

Note: This is the first time I’ve used this form. Sorry for any errors.
