Could we add some way for this query to get the
combined edits of two
or more users on the same page? I know you can query several pages at
once but I'd want something like
&users=Tom|Dick|Harry&titles=The_weather_in_London if possible.
apologies for the late reply.
It's possible, but wouldn't be as useful as you might think, since
it'll order by username first, then timestamp so you'll get all of
Dick's edits first, then Harry's, then Tom's, and each of those groups
would be sorted by timestamp. This means such a query would hardly be
any better than just querying each of the users separately, and in
some cases it might even be worse (such as when Dick has more than 500
edits, in which case you won't get any of Harry's or Tom's without
using query-continue and just waste bandwidth if all you wanted was 50
edits). Since the benefits are few and implementing this would require
a fair bit of restructuring of the already pretty complex
prop=revisions module, I don't think it's worth the effort.
