Description Lupin 2006-07-21 15:43:28 UTC
The above url gives the current revision instead of the ancient revision
referred to by the oldid parameter. This seems somewhat aberrant (and confuses
my script no end).
Comment 1 Rotem Liss 2006-07-21 15:46:30 UTC
I think it's not related to MediaWiki but to a broken database in English
Wikipedia – see .
Comment 2 Lupin 2006-07-21 16:26:15 UTC
I am dubious about this explanation. After all, the url
retrieves the   old revision fine; it's just that it doesn't do so with action=raw.

Ancientness of the revision is not the issue - this seems to affect every old
revision in the MediaWiki namespace.
Comment 3 Lupin 2006-07-21 16:30:20 UTC
Moreover, the same bug appears in my local mediawiki installation, so I think we
can rule out the database problems.
