Option to require an edit comment when saving a page.
I think it would be nice for a moinmoin administrator to easily require the wiki users add a comment about their edit.
An example implementation is available at ThemeMarket/FixedLeft#Edit_Log_Comments
I had a patch for this feature lying around, so I'll share this here. The patch was created against 1.9.3, but it probably applies to 1.9.4 as well. There are really two patches: One to make the comment mandatory and one to show the editor again if the comment is left out (or on any other save error). The second patch works, but I don't think it's perfect yet. Review from someone who is a bit more familiar with the codebase would be welcome.

I improved the patches and moved them to codereview: http://codereview.appspot.com/6547045/

BTW, while writing the CHANGES entry, I noticed that the patch only requires the comment for a page-save. What about an attachment upload? -- ThomasWaldmann 2012-09-22 17:07:21
