Description emddudley 2006-03-26 23:59:31 UTC
It would be nice if the edit summary reminder preference could automatically
detect when no changes had been made to a page (a null edit) and proceed without
reminding the user.
Comment 1 Anders Wegge Jakobsen 2006-03-29 00:20:26 UTC
Closing as INVALID. Null edits in particular need an explanation, as they will
change the page in a way that wil not be apperant otherwise.

Null edits do not appear in the edit history, and as such edit summaries are not
shown anyhow.
Comment 3 wclark 2006-09-05 08:03:28 UTC
Since this would involve running the (null) edited wikicode through a diff
anyway, should the edit summary behave more like the regular diff and show what
has changed?  That might be a useful feature for comparing changes, although it
might also confuse people.  It just seems like a waste to perform the comparison
(to determine if we're dealing with a null edit or not) and then to throw away
the information.

Fixed in r17475.
