When a user edits an article, and the article is deleted while they were editing, the
edit creates the article again. This is often not what the user intends; MediaWiki
should give a warning when this happens, like it does for edit conflicts.
Changed summary to clarify.
*** Bug 914 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I have been playing with this.
A patch against current CVS is at http://jadesukka.homelinux.org:8180/ep.diff.txt
It's also live on http://jadesukka.homelinux.org:8180/betawiki/
Only an account is needed to delete pages (requirement to test this feature).
I'm open to comments and i can do a proper patch if needed.
*** Bug 2989 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
The message MediaWiki:Deletedwhileediting creates such a warning
since MW 1.6alpha.
Indeed, I did a short survey and it's what people expect to happen but pay not
much attention to. Closing the bug.
