Description Martin Szugat 2006-01-07 18:08:54 UTC
Importing pages (via Special:Import) does not update or overwite existing pages with 
the imported content.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2006-01-07 18:17:06 UTC
It should indeed include the imported content in the page 
history. What it might not be doing yet is updating the latest 
revision, if the imported revisions are newer than the old ones. 
Can you confirm?
Comment 2 Daniel Kinzler 2006-01-07 18:18:54 UTC
I belive that an update to the current version should only be forced if that was
requested explicitely. It meight not be what is wanted.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2006-01-07 19:45:49 UTC
Failing to update the current version leaves the database in an inconsistent state, with an 
incorrect page_latest field.

Yes, I can. It works as expected if the imported page is newer than the existing 
page.
