Diffs for meta-data changes (Protect/Move/ContentHandler type) should show something useful, not "No difference".
Open, LowPublic

Description

"No difference" is not useful to show to users; the diff page for moves in particular is probably pretty common. Instead, show something nice by way of meta-data (currently the log is written in hard-coded in the acting user/content lang)?


Version: 1.25-git
Severity: enhancement
See Also: T55299: diff=prev of first revision of a page says "No difference"; should either show diff of full page or no message

"No difference" is correct because a move or protect produce a null revision which points to the same text blob than the previous revision. The summary is in content language as the reason or most of other summarys by users.

I am aware of how MediaWiki works. :-) It's insanely stupid UX, however.
