Hello all,

We are about to make some changes to edit summaries that appear when an edit is made using wbeditentity API, which includes for example editing terms (labels, descriptions, aliases) from the new mobile termbox. The summary messages currently contain “Changed an Item” as a comment. The new summaries will include the message "Changed label, description and/or aliases in # languages", where # is the count of distinct languages that terms in them have been affected.

This change will be deployed on Wednesday, October 2nd, and the new edit summaries will start changing from that point. The old edit summaries will not be changed. More improvements will follow in the future (for example, more details regarding the terms that have been changed and the languages).

You can see more details in this ticket. If you encounter any issues, please let me know. Thanks,
