Description:
related to bug 1891. from url:

Wikipedia recently upgraded to a new wiki software version, but there is a
feature that I had hoped would be in it.

Whenever you click on the history tab, there are several numbers at the
bottom - 10, 20, 50, 100, 500, etc. that gives you the "results per page"
feature. However, I really want a "last" and "first" feature - that is - I
can hop right to the beginning of a page's history to see how it began as an
article. That way, I don't have to press the "next 500" button over and over
again to see the article's beginning.

Hope this will be in the next version of the wiki software. — Stevey7788

Kate & Brion:
isn't that duplicating http://bugzilla.wikimedia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1891 ??
" Skip to oldest version in page history - allow query string to point to the
first (initial) revision"

my understanding of that bug is it retrieves the last _actual revision_ of a page.
this doesn't give you the page, it takes you back in the history list.
