Description Broadbeer 2008-06-23 20:36:13 UTC
Please, create mergehistory group on Danish Wikipedia which can be given
and removed by sysops. (All sysops should be members initially) There's a community vote (see URL)
Comment 1 Raimond Spekking 2008-06-23 20:41:22 UTC
MergeHistory isn't reviewed by Brion, see

Closing this bug as LATER.
Comment 2 Diederik van Liere 2011-11-30 00:10:27 UTC
Broadbeer: can you please update on the status of this request?
Comment 3 Broadbeer 2011-12-03 11:58:06 UTC
It is still valid, though it is 3½ years old. I didn't participate in the vote, I only created the bug. :)
Comment 4 This, that and the other (TTO) 2014-01-07 04:29:44 UTC
Moving old LATER bugs to appropriate resolutions.

What is supposed to be enabled here?
Comment 5 John F. Lewis 2014-01-12 19:43:11 UTC
Consensus is old, assigning to self since the request is straight forward, will poke the community to see if this is what they still want.
Comment 6 John F. Lewis 2014-01-13 16:22:57 UTC
Community discussion in 2009 [1] was against the practise of merging histories through the permission and the old 'delete, move, undelete' process. The community so far shows no consideration to change this.
