Description Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2005-10-09 04:29:01 UTC
adding the __END__ magic word to the end of wikitext and not adding anything
else and saving the page will insert a revision whos text is exactly the same as
the previos revision, a recent vandalbot might have used this to its atvantage
(see url).
Comment 1 Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2005-10-23 19:56:31 UTC
Resolving as INVALID, it might be desierable to save an empty revision e.g. an
empty template.
