            Bug ID: 60442
           Summary: Inconsistent arguments comment/reason/summary for edit
                    messages

          Priority: Unprioritized

When editing, deleting or protecting a page you can add a message. This message
is passed to the methods of the Page object or one of its subclasses. The name
of the argument is always different, when editing a page or changing a category
it is "comment" when protecting, moving or deleting it is "reason". In site.py
it is always "summary", like in the MediaWiki api.

In some scripts like for example category.py they use "editSummary" internall,
eg. in category.py.

Scripts that have a commandline parameter for an edit summary (always?) call it
"-summary".

I propose to change all "reason" and "comment" arguments to "summary" because
this is the term used in site.py, in script commandline parameters and by
MediaWiki itself.
