Description Brion Vibber 2005-06-28 06:36:02 UTC
This was an artifact of a bad bit in the upgrade on 
message updates were done when we had an incomplete page table, then the 
page table was overwritten.

The revision entries created thus have bogus rev_page pointers and are 
attached to seemingly random pages.

They should be easy to identify and remove -- 'MediaWiki default' edits 
on non-MediaWiki: pages.
Comment 1 Roan Kattouw 2010-11-04 11:38:52 UTC
There were 622 such revisions, removed all of them.
