Description Stephan Walter 2004-08-29 20:40:22 UTC
On de.wikipedia, Special:Undelete sometimes shows an "impossible" article history.

Example (from ):

* 20:21, 29. Aug 2004 Stw Sarah Brightman wurde gelöscht (...)
* 22:18, 29. Aug 2004 . . () 

According to this, the article was created at 22:18, and deleted at 20:21, which
is quite impossible.

If you ask me, and IANAE, the software seems to mix UTC and CEST times.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2004-08-29 20:54:00 UTC
The first line is not part of the article history, but rather a line extracted from the deletion log. The deletion 
log in 1.3 uses UTC always, as it's stored as text and needs to be consistent (it used to be even worse -- it 
would list the local time of the user who deleted the page!) Normally it should be visually distinct, spaced from 
the following history lines. With only one history line as in the linked example this isn't very obvious, perhaps.

The history line(s) then follow, like everything else shown with the viewing user's local timestamp.

In any case this visual inconsistency should be gone in 1.4, since the deletion log is now stored as a machine-
readable table and the timestamp can be shown in the user's local time settings.

So this bug is fixed?
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2005-03-10 03:28:08 UTC
Resolving as fixed, as 1.4 does this correctly.
