Nobody likes edit conflicts.
To make them, it would be useful to know how often do they happen and where.
The patterns of editing on a talk pages and on articles are quite different, and so are the patterns of edit conflicts. Analyzing in which namespaces do conflicts happen may show, for example, that 75% of conflicts happen in Talk:, User talk:, and Project: namespaces, and less than 20% in the main space. But it's just a wild guess, and the real numbers might be totally different.
So—do we log edit conflicts on Wikimedia sites? If we don't, can we?
(Tagging Flow because it is a solution to edit conflicts on talk pages, and this issue may be interesting to Flow developers. Tagging Editing-(Department|Analysis) because it seems clearly related to both. Tagging Analytics because it's related as well, although I'm not sure who should own it exactly. Please feel free to adjust the tags.)
