Description Benoit Mortgat 2006-10-25 13:03:54 UTC
Hello all!

I do not understand why there are two words, one in recent changes to view a
diff, which is 'diff', and one in histories, which is 'last', but targets
exactly the same, ie the diff. Why is it not a single MediaWiki parameter?

I'm going to change manually local messages on fr: to have only the word "diff".

Thank you.

In history view there are two different diff links: "cur", diffing against the current (most recent) version of the page, and 
"last", diffing against the last revision before the one you're pointing at.

The two have more precise texts to indicate the difference between them, since they are both diffs.
Comment 2 Benoit Mortgat 2006-10-25 13:10:07 UTC
Yes, I understand that. But you'll agree with me that diff in RC and last in
history act the same way. Then why not put "last" in RC?

It's "diff" to indicate the differences in the change row being viewed.
