Cross-referring comments 5 to 10 on action=info tracking bug 38450:

As now implemented on the http://www.mediawiki.org/ wiki, this has the following minor issues when handling invalid parameters:

  • a non-existent "oldid" value causes info for the main page to be displayed instead of generating an error page

e.g. http://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?oldid=999999999&action=info
(but a non-existent "curid" value correctly shows "Bad title" error)

  • a non-existent "title" value shows invalid data (garbage in edit history info) instead of generating an error page

e.g. http://www.mediawiki.org/w/index.php?title=invalidtitlehere&action=info

Note: I have not tested the handling of revdeleted IDs.
