Returns MediaWiki version and SVN revision ID in action=help&version (453 bytes, patch)
2007-06-28 12:38 UTC, Roan Kattouw

Description Stefan Bauer 2007-06-28 11:48:04 UTC
It is sometimes not easy to recognize when changes in the svn /trunk/phase3/includes/api are going live: The only way at the moment to keep track of enhancements and bugfixes is to look at *all* timestamps in action=help&version - a rather boring task considering the size of the help page.

Please add a revision timestamp for the whole API for easier tracking (newest modification date of all modules - this can be added for example in the "info" value that's empty at the moment or in a new "timestamp" value).
Comment 1 Rob Church 2007-06-28 12:08:15 UTC
A better option is just to include the MediaWiki version plus revision number. You can also obtain this information through Special:Version.
Comment 2 Roan Kattouw 2007-06-28 12:21:41 UTC
I'll add the revision number.

Sorry, relatively new here. FWIW, I did change the bug's status to ASSIGNED.

The attached patch does exactly what you asked for:

api.php?action=help&version yields:
  MediaWiki 1.11alpha (r23501)
  ApiMain: $Id: ApiMain.php 22500 2007-05-28 06:59:19Z yurik $
  ApiBase: $Id: ApiBase.php 23358 2007-06-25 05:44:33Z yurik $
Comment 5 Rob Church 2007-06-28 12:55:32 UTC
Applied in r23502.
