Description Brion Vibber 2005-12-04 03:56:17 UTC
As we upgrade or replace the SVG renderer, it would be nice to be able to easily force all 
rasterized SVGs to get rerendered using the new version, thus more or less automatically 
cleaning up glitched renderings.

A likely easy possibility is an epoch timestamp similar to $wgCacheEpoch; when checking for 
thumbnail file existence, the date could also be compared. Or some such.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-12-04 09:05:18 UTC
$wgThumbnailEpoch committed on CVS HEAD.
