Description Jason Lee, AllyUnion 2005-03-08 15:13:05 UTC
Pages that have been moved should display in their edit history that the page
has been moved from another location.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-03-08 22:03:54 UTC
Related bug 1346 for a move log.
Comment 2 Jason Lee, AllyUnion 2005-03-27 22:47:47 UTC
For clarification:

Suppose I have page called page "A"

When I move page "A" to page "B", the edit history of page "A" and the
information is moved to page "B"

Then the system creates a new page "A" with one single edit in the history:
User blah moved page "A" to page "B" and the cooresponding redirect is left on
the new page "A".  Nothing in the edit history of page "B" (formally page "A")
indicates the page was moved from page "A".

This request is to include in the edit history that on page "B", it indicates
where the page use to be.  Specifically, in the edit history of page "B", it
says: This page was moved from page "A" or something like that.
Comment 3 Brion Vibber 2005-03-28 00:05:25 UTC
This should be relatively practical in 1.5; with separation of revision and text storage we should be 
able to store the additional revision information without wastefully duplicating the text.

Waiting on some additional tweaks to the schema.

This feature has been included in v1.5alpha1.
