When list=allusers is used with auactiveusers, a property 'recenteditcount'
is returned in the result. In bug 67301 it was pointed out that this
property is including various other logged actions, and so should really be
named something like "recentactions".
Gerrit change 130093, merged today, adds the "recentactions" result
property. "recenteditcount" is also returned for backwards compatability,
but will be removed at some point during the MediaWiki 1.25 development
Any clients using this property should be updated to use the new property
name. The new property will be available on WMF wikis with 1.24wmf12, see
https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki_1.24/Roadmap for the schedule.

Hi MediaWiki Team,
I am Kristofer, a final year IT student from the University of Queensland
in Brisbane, Australia. I am currently working on my thesis titled "*Data
Quality in Wikidata over time*", which will investigate the overall
increase in data quality in Wikidata Items over the years as more
information and detail is added through the addition of more statements,
qualifiers and references.
And so, I am writing this email to ask whether it is possible for me to
fetch the entire revision history of an item through the MediaWiki API? I
understand that there is a "View History" Tab in every Wikidata Item page,
however I have not been able to find a way to access that through the API.
Older versions of an Item will allow me to show that the data quality has
steadily increased over time as more information of that item is updated.
Your help in this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance
and I hope to hear from you soon.
