Description Jean-Sébastien Girard 2009-03-16 15:32:53 UTC
It would be nice if editing the intro/lead of an article (i.e. with the appropriate option turned on) gave a default summary of some sort. I know it doesn't need to be linked and hence seems unnecessary, but it would still be a nice little feature that would remove a slight inconsistency.

Could you explain this more?
Comment 2 Casey Brown 2011-04-28 19:17:24 UTC
I'm not sure if this is what carrick meant, but when I saw this bug, I thought he was referring to something like the "/* Section title here */" that shows up by default whenever you edit a section.  (The thing that shows up with an arrow and a link for you to click on in the history page.)
Comment 3 Jean-Sébastien Girard 2011-04-29 18:34:20 UTC
Yes, exactly. Currently (IIRC) if I edit an intro section and do not add a specific summary, the edit summary is blank, while any section will have at least an indication which section was worked on.
