Patches SpecialWantedpages.php for HEAD (692 bytes, patch)

Patches SpecialWantedpages.php for REL1_4 (692 bytes, patch)

Description wiki_tomos 2004-12-30 04:32:28 UTC
Special:Wantedpages list the yet-to-be-written articles that are most linked
from other pages. 

Since the recent upgrading to the Mediawiki 1.4, it seems the articles are
listed in the reverse order, that is from the least linked to the most linked.
It is logical and useful to have the most linked articles first. 

The reversing of the order is observed at least both in Japanese and English

(This is first reported by User:日陰のコスモス (Cosmos in a shade) at Japanese
Wikipedia's bug report page, and confirmed by Tomos.)

The patches hopefully fix the order for cached queries.

Meanwhile, a workaround is to add &recache=false to the URL, but this may slow
the servers?
