Description Purodha Blissenbach 2008-09-22 09:24:22 UTC
Currently, we can either export the latest revision, which is more often not enough or just the wrong one, or all revisions, which are often too many.

I suggest to allow specification of a range of revision numbers (or a time range, if we want it that comfortable) in the Special:Export page. In misermode, only a single revision number should be allowed.

Alternatively, we could offer a series of checkboxes selecting individual revisions each, which I doubt to be useful for large page histories, and which would require pretty much additional input logic and programming effort, so I do not recomment anything the like. For one possible exception: see bug # 15686
