VisualEditor is not the editor linked from the diff page
Closed, ResolvedPublic8 Story Points

Description

At the top of a diff, it gives the date followed by actions: (edit) (undo) (thank)

It is not possible to use VisualEditor from this section. "(edit)" leads to the wikitext editor. Should the option be added (extra clutter, less surprising behavior)? Should the "(edit)" label be changed to "(edit source)"?

Surely we'd have more of these 'edit link not to VE' tasks laying around? Let's make T55441 more generic and merge this in?
