Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I think it would be useful to add a link to the original edit suggestion to the post revision history (and maybe also the post timeline). As far as I can see, there are nowhere else links to the original edit suggestions than in the /review page. Even more, when a suggested edit is processed, any reference to it get lost. How would one ever backtrack it?

For example, the 2nd revision of this question should have somewhere a link to this edit suggestion.

No idea on the timestamp of this, but this has been completed. If you view a post's revision history, edits that were suggested will be indicated as such and will link to the corresponding suggestion.

Image of a sample revision history element. There is a red 'suggested' which indicates the link.
