Description Purodha Blissenbach 2006-12-18 09:36:26 UTC
For new pages, the beginning of their content is shown as edit 
summary by default. If there are line endings, they are 
converted to spaces for the edit history. Wikilinks remain 
wikilinks.

In the rc channel in irc.wikimedia.org, however, these 
summaries have line ends removed, and wikilinks are spelt out 
verbatim (i.e. not converted to links)

While the latter is fine with me, I think, line ends should 
not be dropped but rather converted to spaces, too.

Example:
- Copy & Paste from IRC :
10:10	rc	[[Francisco Pizarro]] N http://ksh.wikipedia.org/
wiki/Francisco_Pizarro * Purodha * (+553) New page: Em [[Joohr 
1533]] föhrtdä [[Konkißtadoor]] [[Francisco Pizarro]] dem 
[[Shpanije|shpanische Rish]] sing Troppeen_[[Amärrika]]jäje de 
[[Inka_Rish|Inkas ier Risch]]on zoschläijd_e...

- Copy & Paste from [[Special:Recentchanges]] :
N    10:11 Francisco Pizarro (diff; hist) . . Purodha (Talk | 
contribs | block) (New page: Em Joohr 1533 föhrt dä 
Konkißtadoor Francisco Pizarro dem shpanische Rish sing Troppe

- Copy & Paste from page history at

Mote that, the above was copied from browser display, so the

Normally it's not possible for line breaks to exist in edit summaries.  These
are automatically converted to spaces by the HTML specification, but that's
probably not great to rely on.
Comment 2 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2006-12-22 19:59:22 UTC
Okay, it appears that something magically turns line breaks in the autosummary
to simple spaces (U+20) for new pages.  I'm guessing it's fixed on storage in
the database, but not on RSS feed or whatever RC bots use.  I've set it to
happen higher up in the code, r18500.  Please wait a few days for the code to be
resynced and then confirm whether it helped.
Comment 3 Purodha Blissenbach 2006-12-29 01:00:49 UTC
I did help. I've seen several instances of spaces in places 
of line breaks on RC on IRC, no more concatenated lines.

Thanky you!
