make version available with action=paraminfo
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

To get Information about version and source files of a module it is necessary to parse action=help&version

I think, it is useful when paraminfo can also show this information (for requested modules) by appending &version to the query.

Thanks.

Done in r50367. The output format may not be ideal, but breaking it down further is not really possible AFAIK.
