Description Carlos 2007-01-08 13:00:02 UTC
(In the Watchlist of users that have the rights for it.) Now that we can know
that a page was blanked or replaced by looking only at its summary on the
Watchlist, it makes sense to be able to revert those edits quickly on the spot,
without going to a diff page first.

Comment 1 Rob Church 2007-01-08 16:05:20 UTC
* Encourages ownership of pages
* Users ought to check changes before rolling them back [automatic summaries are
only advisory, and can be spoofed]
Comment 2 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2007-01-08 17:55:43 UTC
. . . which applies to recentchanges as well.  Well, not ownership, but that's a
site-specific policy.
