VisualEditor: "Edit" should load the latest version without hardcoding the "current" revision id (due to race condition and cache)
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Steps to reproduce:

  1. open article in browser window
  2. open same article in another browser window, edit, save changes
  3. edit with VE in first window

Expected result: VE show some sort of warning, and loads the newest version of the article (or maybe refuses to edit it at all).

Actual result: VE happily edits the old revision, and shows [[MediaWiki:Editingold]].


Version: unspecified
Severity: minor
