  • Please use more descriptive edit summaries. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:07, 12 May 2013 (UTC)
Sorry, I cannot follow.  @xqt 14:56, 12 May 2013 (UTC)
I think something like Fixing/normalizing coordinates will be much more descriptive then Wikipedia python library; cosmetic changes. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:42, 13 May 2013 (UTC)
Yes, that comment will become more meaningful. But I didn't made test edits yet for this request. That message was done while preparing the last run requested at Commons:Administrators'_noticeboard#Category:Pages_with_malformed_coordinate_tags to touch these pictures because I found some problems with access rights until re-login the bot.  @xqt 04:51, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
  • The proposal looks fine. Go ahead and run test edits for this request. --99of9 (talk) 12:55, 14 May 2013 (UTC)
    Test edits done [1].  @xqt 04:31, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
    Looks OK for me. Could you please disclose full list of cosmetic changes? I noticed section headers standardization and excessive empty lines removal. May be another fixes could be proposed. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:36, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
    The source of cosmetic changes is listed here. I changed the commons specific parts in pyrev:11534 today which is from Commons:Tools/pywiki file description cleanup because I saw some differences while reviewing the bot's edits.  @xqt 18:23, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

If there are no objections, I think bot status should be granted. --EugeneZelenko (talk) 14:18, 18 May 2013 (UTC)
