Description Waldir 2007-04-22 02:28:59 UTC
As well as there is a code to add an auto-summary when deleting pages, it would
be nice to have the same functionality to delete images, instead of having to
edit the image previoulsy to copy the tag text or whatever might be needed for
the deletion summary.

PS- see also bug 9656, which requires changes to the auto-summary script
Comment 1 Rob Church 2007-08-22 06:21:34 UTC
This would seem to be less useful for images; a drop-down box containing predefined reasons might be preferable.
Comment 2 Waldir 2007-08-23 00:16:22 UTC
I was referring to the possibility of including automatically in the deletion summary a excerpt of the description text, which tipically includes the tags that the image has been marked with. A dropdown list is a good idea, yes, but it's a bit less automatic, and is less flexible... but still better than nothing :)
