What are the numbers in brackets indicating?

Contributions are determined through bytes (B) and kilobytes (KB). Green numbers with an positive symbol, eg. (+129), indicate that bytes have been added to the edited article, in other words, the editor has added content to the article. Red numbers with a negative symbol, eg. (-129), indicate that bytes have been taken away from the article, in other words, the editor has removed some content.

What are the italic words in brackets?

Most edits will have an edit summary, which informs users briefly on what actions have been executed within the edit.
