$wgFeedDiffCutoff = 0 still generates diffs.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: wikiadmin

This bug came to light with [ Bug 14867].

Setting $wgFeedDiffCutoff = 0 does inhibit display of diffs on RSS feeds, but does not stop internal generation of diffs.
Normally, this would not be noticed except when there is a problem with the DifferenceEngine and it takes 20 to 30 seconds for a diff on a pathological case. Depending on max_execution_time on the server, this will cause timeouts and HTTP 500 errors. Thus, RSS feeds get broken.
