Description Mark Clements (HappyDog) 2005-03-21 00:37:41 UTC
This was requested on meta by User:Fredrik.

It would be useful to have the article size in bytes next to each version in an
article's history. Size changes could show up on recent changes. This would not
only allow one to track article growth conveniently, it'd also be very useful
for catching page blanking and content removal.

This would require adding rev_length to the revison table analogous to page_len.

Or calculating on the fly. Probably prefer the rev_length field, for performance
reasons.
Comment 5 Mark Clements (HappyDog) 2006-12-26 18:05:55 UTC
Now that we have the byte difference in recent changes, how easy is it to add it
to the page history as well?  The original request was for article size, rather
than size difference - I'm not sure which would be most useful, or whether there
are any technical details that may affect that decision.
Comment 6 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2006-12-26 18:12:35 UTC
It's no more or less easy than it was before.  History uses the revision table,
whereas recent changes and watchlist use the recentchanges table.  The
before/after sizes are currently stored only in recentchanges, not in revision,
so nothing has changed as far as history is concerned.
