            Bug ID: 59161
           Summary: Add option to FlaggedRevs to allow a watching user to
                    ignore a particular revision
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: master
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: FlaggedRevs
    Classification: Unclassified
   Mobile Platform: ---

Sometimes a user will not feel comfortable either accepting or rejecting a
particular revision to a watched page, perhaps because he lacks knowledge about
the particular subject involved in that revision. But he might want to keep the
page on his watchlist, e.g. so he can revert any outright vandalism to it.
Therefore, users should have the option, in addition to "accept revision" and
"reject changes", to "ignore revision" so that it won't show up on the
watchlist as a pending change and so that it won't notify him, "There are
currently pending changes to reviewed pages on your watchlist. Your attention
is needed!"

When users can't ignore particular revisions, then they are more likely to
either ignore the flaggedrevs-watched-pending message or unwatch pages that
attract revisions they do not feel qualified to review.
