It is procedural that users ask the protecting admin about unprotection before requesting it at [[WP:RFPP]]. More often than not this does not happen, so per request we're going to try to have Twinkle remind them.
In short: When the protection module is opened, you'll see the current protections as you do normally, but with the name of the protecting admin next to each entry, which links to their talk page. When you attempt to request unprotection you are prompted (with
Thoughts? I think this change is less than perfect but still effective, and will be well-received.
Alright, after those last 2 commits I'm confident with what I have. I guess in my testing I got a little confused... turns out the logging API does report who actually applied pending changes protection, it just doesn't indicate it was transferred from a page move. As for the MediaWiki implementation this is probably the better way to do it, I guess (who cares whether it was moved).
Meanwhile tracking down who edit/move/create protected a page after it has been moved has long been a headache for users to figure out, so I guess that's a major bonus with this change to Twinkle. That is, one could open up the protect module only to see who applied the original protection. Pretty cool!
