Summary: Script should not remove line-breaks after initial
                    noinclude tags
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: wikimedia-deployment
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: Normal
         Component: Page editing

As explained at Wikisource, there is some script removing line-breaks when they
are inserted after the closing </noinclude> of the initial section of the page.
This was noted when editing pages in "Page:" namespace on Wikisources.

The problem only happens when javascript is enabled in browser.

When an editor is correcting a typo in such a page where there are line-breaks
after the initial noinclude section, its edit will also remove the line-break
even if if when previewing the changes made there was no lines removed. This is
annoying, since the user is not aware that he will be removing that and can
only detect that after saving the page. Then, to correct the problem it will
needed to disable javascript, or add more lines than the MediWiki will save in
the wikicode of the page (and he still need to hope no one else edit the page
