            Bug ID: 60861
           Summary: Flow: Disallow regular API edits to Flow boards
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: master
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: Flow

Currently, attempting to use the API's action=edit to edit a Flow board (e.g.
[[Wikipedia talk:Flow/Developer test page]]) results in a bizarre sequence of
edits [1].

The edit goes through successfully, but is then immediately reverted with the
edit summary "/* Taken over by Flow */". This revert is attributed to the user
who made the initial edit (which seems inappropriate, since they did not
actually invoke the revert).

Instead of this behaviour, the edit should be rejected by the API. That way,
the client can handle the error in a meaningful way.
