Date last edited does not always reflect the correct user

Of minor importance but a widespread bug I noticed a long time ago. It needs more fleshing out here. This is a wiki so feel free to edit this first post to better describe the issue and add examples. :pencil2:

When Scott mass added a bunch of taxon framework relationships earlier this year, the “last edited by” at the bottom of taxa/edit updated to the date last modified. But, the username was not loarie’s, but rather the person who had edited it before then.

I’ve seen this happen on:

  • taxon names
  • taxa
  • listed taxa
  • ?

Potentially occurring due to:

  • adding or editing a taxon framework relationship
  • committing a taxon change
  • adding or editing a taxon name
  • ?
