Details

Currently there is no obvious way for a contributor to make changes to a revision before approving it. What should happen:

1. In history view, click on the date of any revision (rejected or accepted)
2. click on edit.
3. Now you are editing the source of that revision.
4. Submit for review (creates a new revision)
(In reply to comment #0)
> 2. click on edit.

From a UX perspective, we should really make this explicit, otherwise, being on an old revision silently changes the action of the Edit tab. We could add an "edit" link into the revision info on the revision page[1], though I'm not sure what's the best message:

"Edit this revision" (sort of misleading, you can't actually edit the revision).
"Create a new revision from this" (kind of long, but specific)

Now there is a "Edit article based on this revision" link below the revision info.
