Flow: Editing existing content should give the editor a dialog requesting an edit-summary
Open, MediumPublic

Description

Note for Pau -- let's discuss this and figure out a UI.

After editing any existing content, when the I click "Save", it should give me a dialog requesting an edit-summary.

cf. discussion at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Topic:Sedsjclychk64ngk


Copy from merged duplicate:

As a user, I want to be able to provide an edit summary when editing other people's comments, so that it is clear for any one why I edited their replies.

This is possible on normal (wiki) talk pages, and is not possible on Flow talk pages. Therefore, users just give up doing constructive edits to existing comments. E.g. from Portuguese Wikipedia:
