VisualEditor: Save dialog "minor edit" link should either give a pop-up explanation or target=_new
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Right now the "This is a [minor edit]" text in the save dialog tries to take the user to a new page in the current context, prompting them to abandon their changes (or not leave). This is sub-optimal. :-)

Funny enough, in the current edit mode the minor edit link takes you away from editing. AFAIK, the taget attribute cannot be added to a link wikitext. Solution is to open the minor edit page in a new tab by setting target: _new with jQuery.

Changed to target=_blank
