Description gpvos 2006-11-28 10:13:49 UTC
The recent undo implementation (Bug 6925: History patching: allow old edits to be 
reversed) is available to non-sysops, while the normal undo is for sysops only. Surely 
this is not intended.

I see no harm in it, since the user still has to perform a manual save, so it's
not quite like rollback.
Comment 2 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2006-11-28 16:59:31 UTC
It has much more in common with manual revert (go to old revision, click a
button, enter edit summary, save) than rollback (click a single button straight
from revision/history view), so it's only logical that mere peons should get it.
