Description Nuno Tavares 2006-04-15 11:26:34 UTC
Well, the summary says it all. It could be any arbitrary header, just like:
X-MediaWiki-Revision: xxxx

It should be fairly easy to implement, and I can't see any disadvantage, but
rather some basic support for non-webbased clients - at least while there is no
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2006-04-16 07:23:44 UTC
If you want that, use the established API (Special:Export).
Comment 2 Nuno Tavares 2006-04-16 13:33:52 UTC
Well, Special:Export doesn't support fetching specific revisions
(action=raw&oldid=xxxx does), and it doesn't signal HTTP 3xx redirects... anyway
I forgot about Special:Export, so I sent another feature req.
