Implement Flow-specific revision history support in Pywikibot
Open, MediumPublic


Flow maintains its own system of revision storage, which is not implemented in the same manner as that of standard core revisions. Right now, the revision capability of Flow pages, which is inherited from BasePage, is basically useless for practical purposes. This task will use new Flow API calls, view-topic-history and view-post-history, to access Flow content revisions. A new FlowRevision class will be created to represent these revisions.

[WIP] Add Flow-specific revision support

@happy5214: Hi! This task has been assigned to you a while ago. Could you maybe share an update? Do you still plan to work on this task? Thanks!

I thought I had already mentioned it here, but I've been trying to tackle the comments that have been posted on Gerrit.

I have been waiting for a review on the latest patch changes for two months now. I would greatly appreciate it if this task isn't snatched out from under me due to lack of reviews by the PWB devs.

Maybe you could split the large patch into some smaller patches to make it easier to review. I think renaming format to content_format is a little bit off-topic to this task.

This task has been assigned to the same task owner for more than two years. Resetting task assignee due to inactivity, to decrease task cookie-licking and to get a slightly more realistic overview of plans. Please feel free to assign this task to yourself again if you still realistically work or plan to work on this task - it would be welcome!

For tips how to manage individual work in Phabricator (noisy notifications, lists of task, etc.), see for available options.
(For the records, two emails were sent to assignee addresses before resetting assignees. See T228575 for more info and for potential feedback. Thanks!)
