Summary: Link to the edit in the warn-log if user saved anyway.
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: any
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: AbuseFilter

When a filter is set up to warn but not to prevent the edit, it would be nice
if when viewing the hits of a filter on the AbuseFilter-page or on Special:Log
for a particular page or user, when examining the details to have the
information: "Did the user save anyway after the warning ? If yes, a link to
the diff would be handy".

Without this it means we have to go into the user's contributons page and page
back to around the time the abusefilter was logged and go through the edits.

The side-case is that when the user made a lot of edits but works in tabs,
there can be a delay of several minutes between the warning and the actual edit
making it even harder to trace.

When submitting the edit-form to be saved after a warning I think it's fairly
simple to pass the log-id like  is done with timestamp for edit conflicts. Once
saved the log-id is looked up and a diff-field is populated or something like
that so that when examining the abusefilter hit the diff can be found directly.
