Description George Chriss 2007-04-26 04:23:50 UTC
When creating an edit summary, I find that creating a wiki-link to the template
I added helps newcomers understand what it is I have done.  Normally words
within double brackets display as plain text, but there is no reason I see that
a link could not be created automatically.  For example the following:

/* Some section */ I added the {{Unreferenced}} template

should be interpreted in the history list as:

/* Some section */ I added the {{[[Template:Unreferenced|Unreferenced]]}} template.

r22051 splits Linker::formatComment in two functions:
* formatAutoComments
* formatLinksInComment
We can probably add another function to handle templates
