Description David Benbennick 2005-06-28 19:15:41 UTC
It should be possible to delete only the most recent 
revision of an image.  When an image is vandalized, the 
current procedure is to revert, then delete the second-to-
last (vandalism) version.  This is suboptimal, as it 
leaves a phantom "Reverted to earlier revision" version in 

The "Delete all revisions" link is redundant anyway, as it 
does the same thing as the "Delete" tab.  I suggest 
that "Delete all revisions" should be replaced with a 
regular "del".
Comment 1 db [inactive,noenotif] 2011-07-03 17:29:40 UTC
Suggest INVALID, because you also cannot delete the current version of a page.
Comment 2 TeleComNasSprVen 2014-04-24 02:09:23 UTC
Per comment #1, don't see the reason for this. Wiki pages are frequently vandalized and the most egregious cases are often RevisionDeleted AFTER the latest revision containing said vandalism has been rolled back. Why would it not be the same for files?

This should be marked INVALID and the second concern about the "delete all revisions" link can be filed as a separate bug.

Closing as per comment 1 and comment 2.
