Description peter green 2006-01-23 02:23:44 UTC
what i'd like is the ability to tell the software to run a diff between two
versions and then use that diff as a patch to remove that edit from the current
version without touching the edits in between.

obviously the patch may fail to apply perfectly so a preview of the changes and
a list of failed hunks would be important but it could still save quite a bit of
hassle in removing vandalism that wen't unnoticed for a while.

Marking as depending on
Bug 3576: Patch to implement rev_deleted (deletion of single article 

Please note that in diff the rightmost revision is rendered in LTR 
wikies and the leftmost in RTL wikies.

Sometimes these revisions would not load / render as described in
Bug 4641: Fatal Error in Sanitizer.php

As a consequence rev_delete links should be available at both revisions.

best regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

no i'm not talking about removing information from the history i'm talking about
a way to revert vandalism without having to manually merge the edits since
Comment 4 Rob Church 2006-02-23 12:42:22 UTC
Sorry, I read the summary, then Gangleri's comment, and made a mistake.
Comment 5 Rob Church 2006-12-03 14:35:14 UTC
This was added a little while ago, in the form of the Undo feature.
