Description Gunter Schmidt 2006-06-18 22:42:45 UTC
I want to keep the database small. As we use the wiki internally, history is not legally important.

I would like a function which physically deletes old versions restricted to these condition:

"Of all consecutive changes one specific user made to a page in one day, keep only the last one."

- This would mainly delete working stages.
- It will keep all changes different users made.
- It will keep all changes that were made on different days.

Too specific for the general needs of MediaWiki, I think. Write a custom maintenance 
script to fill your specific requirements.
