I have seen two cases of strange things happening after a revert recently:
(1) was reported on wikitech-l. After a revert of a page that was vandalised to the correct version, references had not been updated , .
(2} after a revert of a control page for the extension Gadgets, the whole tab for the extension in Special:Preferences disappeared .
In both cases a null edit fixed the issues. I suspect 'revert' may be taking some shortcuts it shouldn't take.
en.wp was running a near SVN HEAD version at the time. Betawiki was running SVN HEAD.
"revert" as in "rollback"?
Looks like something triggered a db rollback. I've merged the linksupdate stuff in with the main transaction so they are more atomic.
Comment 3 is on r40752.
Reverted r40752, reopened bug. See wikitech-l.
