Description

It's too easy to just leave the "short description of changes" box empty. I'd like, for my own good, to have a site option which makes it mandatory. Having to put something each time is a minor annoyance that really pays for itself when you're viewing the history.

For convenience, there could be a "minor change" checkbox above the textarea which would gray out the text area and automatically insert the text "minor change". Or, there could be a list of predefined descriptions like: "minor (typo)" / "minor (clarity)", "minor (spelling)", etc.
