Maybe there's a need for a new special page to list edits that are
awaiting approval, or update an old special page to highlight (a la
Special:Newpages) edits which have not been approved. As I understand
it, once a Wikinews article is written and checked, it is protected
from editing anyway, so there wont be a lot of changes to old articles
that have simply never been checked.
