Right, you must always tell it which fragment(s) you want to patch.
There was only the one in this case.  (So it's not really "mirroring",
but rather cherry-picking.)

(Note to developer: disable the 'Patch' button when no 'Frag' is
 checked. ;-)

That's it's way of telling you, "OK, all patched."  (Note to
developer: give the user a proper response page with follow-through
links.  Don't just throw her onto the history page.)

To see your text from that history page, just press the 'user page'
tab.  (I know it looks like it's already pressed, but it's not.
That's a MediaWiki bug, and it'll be fixed when we upgrade the
pollwiki server.)

You now have the same environmental policy as me.
