Description David Chang 2006-08-28 21:38:17 UTC
Keeping all the old versions of pages really bloats a system.

Mediawiki is popular and used by more and more organizations. In many
situations such as internal websites, there is no need to keep 
all the old versions.

thanks, david

See the maintenance/deleteOldRevisions.php script. That is the extent to which
such behaviour is supported.
