Description Jeff Martin 2006-08-01 19:49:12 UTC
Add a system for article forking. This is different than tagging or marking
revisions of an article.
Comment 1 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2006-08-01 20:34:23 UTC
This would be pretty much the same as adding a "copy" option, in addition to
move.  Seems a good idea.
Comment 2 Raimond Spekking 2006-08-01 20:36:47 UTC
Maybe could be realized via the transwiki import/export function. I like the
idea too.
Comment 3 Rob Church 2007-03-27 21:25:27 UTC
We have the Duplicator extension now, which can create independent copies.
