In the first instance it's more about diary entries and comments than 
about changesets, though we can consider extending to include that if 
there is enough time. Serge (the mentor) has the details.

The key point is the idea of a polymorphic model anyway, as that will 
allow us to support reporting of anything.

Well reporting will be done from existing views I imagine but yes new 
views will be needed for presenting moderation requests to admins.
