there's a related proposal to expose logs and build real-time visualizations of all
server-side events emitted by MW, I'm copying Ori as he may be able to give you some
Keep in mind that merge conflicts may not answer questions related to (post-edit) reverts
or edit wars.

I'm hoping to provide a data stream and archival data for edit conflict events on
*.wikipedias. The short-term goal is to help support further research into heuristic
reconstruction of the article revision graph, see this paper presented by Jianmin Wu

The only marker I have found so far is, unfortunately, a message emitted using wfDebug.
Do we have an archive of production debug logs, and what is the process I would follow for
proposing a historical experiment or an ongoing filter using this data?
For anyone who's curious, I think the main string I'm looking for is
"Keeping edit conflict, failed merge.", but it would be worthwhile to analyze
logging from every code path within conflict resolution.
