This ticket is about the tasks that have to be done, once the hook is merged in core.
- Document the hook
- Remove the thanks hack, that's currently implemented in the revision slider
- Add a notice to the revision slider extension page, alerting gadget maintainer etc to use the hook for compatibility with the revision slider
- Contact the wikeddiff maintainer
- Decide on how to sunset the current wikeddiff hack
The revision slider is a feature that adds a visualization of all revisions to the compare screen. Revisions are represented as bars on a line and can be selected using two pointers. The revision slider was originally prototyped by the WMF Community Tech team and then handed over to the WMDE TCB team, as it is also a solution to fulfill a wish of the German Community Wishlist: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Umfragen/Technische_W%C3%BCnsche_2015/Artikel#Anzeige_aller_Bearbeitungskommentare_im_Diff
