Special:Undelete to use same radio button styling for diffs as history pages
Open, MediumPublicFeature



(Forked from bug 21279 comment 33 per Brion)

Per bug 21279, code will be patched so that deleted revisions can be referenced
by their rev_id, and this will work regardless of subsequent delete/undelete
activity. Bug 28820 requests that diffs are enhanced to work using rev_id even if one or both revisions are deleted.

Once this is done, Brion has noted that [[Special:Undelete]] needs "more work for a serious overhaul" (bug 21279 comment 33).

This request is to ask that building on bug 28820, that [[Special:Undelete]] has radio buttons and paging for the list of deleted revisions, so that a user can select a diff between any two revisions listed as is possible for undeleted revisions (on history pages).

At present a diff between arbitrary deleted revisions is not possible, and if a revision is deleted then it is not possible to view its diff against another deleted revision, even if the user has the appropriate viewing rights to them.

Version: unspecified
Severity: enhancement
