           Summary: Flow edit_existing feature can have edit conflict
           Product: Wikimedia
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: Quality Assurance
    Classification: Unclassified
   Mobile Platform: ---

Flow tests run on CloudBees/Sauce Labs occasionally fail with "failed insert"
editing an existing post. Overlapping test sessions may attempt to edit the
same topic or post on the Talk:Flow_QA board, which leads to an edit conflict.

It would be better if the test edited a known topic or post rather than the
first one on the Flow board. Previous feature tests create topics and posts, so
(commence handwaving...) the edit_existing test could take an optional
parameter naming a particular text string or item ID to edit  The alternative
is for the test to handle edit conflict, but it's a rare occurrence so the code
would be untested until it breaks.

A related minor enhancement: to aid debugging issues it would be nice if edit
strings like "Post edited0.2921675098405858" included the BROWSER_LABEL.
