Description Martin Manscher 2006-11-09 12:28:23 UTC
When using bots to change user discussion pages (e.g. link fixes), the user
should not be notified of "new messages", as the edit is seldom (if ever)
relevant for the user.
Comment 1 Andrew Garrett 2006-11-09 12:29:38 UTC
Already fixed. A few weeks ago.
Comment 2 Martin Manscher 2006-11-09 12:31:31 UTC
OK. Will await update :-)
Comment 3 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2006-11-09 22:39:41 UTC
The edits must be marked minor for it to work, but other than that I should
imagine it's live by now.
