Description Dan Jacobson 2006-12-12 15:49:38 UTC
Judging from websites I've visited, mediawiki doesn't put its own version
number anywhere in the webpages it makes, not even in the comments,
nor even in HTTP header!
Comment 1 Rob Church 2006-12-12 16:58:02 UTC
Well, there's Special:Version. Plonking the MediaWiki version number in parsed
HTML means we'd have to invalidate the parser caches every time we bumped it,
which isn't a happy idea.

Is there any particular benefit to this?
