Re-opening this. I'm fairly sure this isn't fixed, but the opening comment is
kind of confusing.

When you get an e-mail about a new comment on a revision, it looks like
something like this:

----
User "Platonides" posted a comment on MediaWiki.r70270.

Full URL: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:Code/MediaWiki/70270#c13834

Comment:

I don't see the need for history either. Why history and not edit, for example?
If any, I would modify whatlinkshere-links so that those links can be created
in MediaWiki namespace.
----

This is a problematic if you can't remember off-hand what the revision is
about. As time passes, it becomes easier and easier to forget which revisions
you've commented on and why, so the new comments make less sense and require
greater context.

The e-mails should look like something like this instead:

----
User "Platonides" posted a comment on MediaWiki.r70270.

Full URL: http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Special:Code/MediaWiki/70270#c13834
Commit summary: * (bug 24563) Entries on Special:WhatLinksHere now have a link
to their history

New comment:

If any, I would modify whatlinkshere-links so that those links can be created
in MediaWiki namespace.
----

This way, you can know what the revision was about, so the comments hopefully
make more sense.

Having commit summary context should apply to follow-up e-mails and new comment
e-mails. I've changed the bug summary to be a bit clearer about this.
