I get a lot of changes in my review queue that are simply updates to links in posts. While most of them are likely legitimate, I suppose I should be checking that the changes are needed and actually point to the right thing. I noticed that I was getting a little blase about this when I approved one change without checking it. I've since been trying to skip these as they are a bit tedious.
I've got mixed feelings about this because I think this is in large part a good thing when someone updates a bad link but I reviewing them to be a pain in the ass. I skipped one today and it came back to me. So I looked at the link where someone was updating a sourceforge link to a github link. Based on what's happened to soruceforge lately, I'm guessing that this is probably the right thing to do but both links work and present the same content. What is the standard here and how much time am I, as a reviewer, expected to put into figuring out if this change is kosher?
