Description Tomasz Wegrzanowski 2006-01-24 00:25:56 UTC
The only way is - undelete, get the source, redelete.
It's quite confusing to people observing the recent changes.

It seems to me that it should be very easy to fix.
Comment 1 Rob Church 2006-01-24 00:28:28 UTC
Why would you need to access the source of a deleted revision? If it's deleted,
it's for a reason. The existing process of undelete-view source-delete is
consistent and simple enough.
Comment 2 Tomasz Wegrzanowski 2006-01-24 00:31:19 UTC
For the same reason I need access to the rendered deleted revisions.

Like, to copy bits and pieces to different pages.
