[PagePreparation] Link to edit and language in summary
Open, NormalPublic

Description

After confirming the action from Special:PagePreparation, I got a link to https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:ConfirmAccount?action=edit and in the history I see https://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=Extension%3AConfirmAccount&diff=1107033&oldid=1012488

  1. The link should not append ?action=edit but use fullurl: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Magic_words#URL_data
  2. the edit summary should be in content language, not in my interface language.

Why so? As we are saying "You can [edit] it", it would be better to take the user to the editing window, I feel.

Change 154398 had a related patch set uploaded by BPositive:
Edit summary in content language at Special:PagePreparation

Also, the same behavior for edit summary is expected in case of Special:PageMigration.

Change 154398 merged by jenkins-bot:
Edit summary in content language at Special:PagePreparation and Special:PageMigration

https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/154398

Is it now using a fullurl for the action=edit link?

I had mentioned this, you din't reply. It does not use the full URL in the merged patch.

Ok. Please look at https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Magic_words#URL_data again, the second example shows how an action=edit URL should look.
