When an article is approved only the last editor gets a message, even if he just corrected a spelling mistake and the revision before that was a big change. Since we don't track who contributed to a specific revision, that message should go out to everyone who has submitted a revision since the last approved one.

It currently says: 
"Leave a message for the contributor: (optional)"

Maybe it could say:
"(Optional) Leave a message to the contributor(s):
Recipient(s): Scoobidiver, AliceWyman, Verdi"

Thoughts on wording? Bonus points for correctly distinguishing between "contributor" and "contributors" (rather than always using "contributor(s)").

James, since we will use "deferred" and otherwise leave unreviewed this seems unnecessary. We should move on with bug 685578 though.
