One would expect that if oldid (A) <= oldid (B) then timestamp (A) would be also
<= timestamp (B).

It seams that this is *not* the case.

How to deal with this? Should the revisions be sorted by oldid or by timestamp?
Wiki's created after a certain date should not be afected.

I do not know if this relates also to:

bug 1915: Edit link URL gets "oldid" from page URL instead of actual id, where
page URL has "oldid" and "direction" values (
http://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1915#c3 )
Comment 2 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-10-10 13:09:24 UTC
please compare with bug 1919 comment #1

Hallo!

Please start at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page?go=first&action=history
to compare the "Earliest" revision with the "second" revision.

go=first&action=history translates to
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Main_Page&action=history&limit=50&offset=20020209112809
the diff translates to
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Main_Page&diff=139993&oldid=139992

The "earliest" revision is
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Main_Page&oldid=139992

You will see a link to a revision with a lower id number but with an older
timestamp:

Now please click on "Older edit" unless "Older edit" is not available any more. 

This is the link

Temporary measure.

This behaviour relates both to "diff=prev&oldid=" *and* to "direction=prev&oldid=".

*explanation*
It seams that action=history is ordered by *timestamps*. You will find

at
http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Main_Page&dir=prev&offset=20020801000001&limit=50&action=history

but
"Previous diff" / "Next diff" follows an order by *"oldid"* (page_id (?)).

Marking this bug as a duplicate of
Bug 2930: The edit history is wrong: It is based on timestamps while diff and
direction is based on revision id's
