Description vipuser 2005-03-24 08:58:36 UTC
I want to get the old version of the category page, but I can't edit the history
versions of the categories!
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-04-21 10:32:27 UTC
Looks fine to me.

If there's still a problem please provide more information, such as a description of what you expected to see and do and a detailed 
comparison of how that differs from what you actually see and can do.
Comment 2 Richard J. Holton 2005-04-21 19:47:18 UTC
If you're looking for historical category membership, you won't find it. The
list of pages in a category is generated dynamically at the time the category
page is requested.
Comment 3 Christopher Beland 2006-02-23 23:30:19 UTC
I would consider that a feature request, then.  It would certainly be useful.
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2006-02-24 00:37:50 UTC
Not likely to happen, then. WONTFIXing.
Comment 5 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2006-02-26 21:41:06 UTC
Beside "historical category membership" mentioned at comment 2 the url contains
also templates (which might have changed in the mean time; see bug 851). The
"historical revision" of the page in the category namespace is shown in the
"actual" context.

(In reply to comment #3)
> I would consider that a feature request, then.  It would certainly be useful.

MediaWiki features (rendering, special pages etc.) are mainly focusing on
relations between "actual" objects (page titles, new / deleted pages, new /
expanded MediaWiki features etc.).

At bug 851 comment 6 Brion stated "Not implementable." In my opinion this
applies here as well.
