Description Jeff Bonham 2005-03-02 02:29:23 UTC
On diff pages which show the difference between revisions of a page which  
separated by one or more edits, it would be useful to see how many edits have  
taken place between the two revisions without having to page through the  
history.  This would also remove the illusion that can be created of a single 
user making many changes to an article by creating a diff of widely separated 
"36 edits by 5 users"

r18194 adds the number of intervening revisions to the diff view. I have not
added the number of distinct editors, since I'd expect it to be harder on the
database, and the semantics are somewhat harder to define. (Should the editors
of both of the endpoint revisions be excluded? Only one? Neither?)
