Again, as it is not running at the Foundation, we are not notified of new

I was not able to find any examples.
I think that such a blame and trust tool belongs in git, not in
wikipedia because there are many other usages for it.

So far all of the implementations of blame tools for the full history
dump of a wiki do not have the features of an ideal blame tool.
Given an arbitrary string of text an ideal blame tool can scan Wikipedia's
entire history - and ideally the history of all WMF wikis - and tell you the
authors of that text.
The design of such a system is essentially a search engine where each
revision is a page with an associated author. The engine works iteratively,
first finding all page blobs (where a page blob contains all text across all
revisions for an article) that contain all of the words being searched for,
and then iteratively working forwards in time on the revisions of that
article in an effort to find the earliest authors. This isn't a complete
spec, but it gives the general idea.
