I was suggested to approve the question edit performed by someone else, and while I found the edits quite reasonable, couple tags were missing, so I added them, and this automatically rendered the whole edit as mine, which is both inaccurate and not cool. :-)

Next time I'll approve first and then add tags/my own edits, but — can this be changed by the community or this is just a bad UX of SE itself?

Or, else, should I report it as a bug or an erroneous site behavior?

That's not quite true. You approved the original edit and automatically added an additional edit to the edit log.

From an audit trail point of view then everything is accounted for. They get their credit for a successful edit, as do you. Just that yours came more recently so it shows on the question itself that it was recently edited by you.

    Ah, okay, thanks for the clarification. I thought the whole edit got assigned to me.
