Description

I have noticed that sometimes when viewing history diffs for wiki pages, it doesn't properly show what has been changed.

Example diff: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/w/index.php?title=Template:Software2&diff=prev&oldid=600455 It just shows that [[Category:Software| ]] was removed, when it was actually changed to [[Category:Software], as you can see by editing each version.

Another diff: http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/w/index.php?title=Key:drive_through&diff=prev&oldid=549044 It doesn't show any changes, when the first line was changed from {{ValueDescription to {{KeyDescription

Most of the time it shows the changes correctly, its just a few diffs where I have noticed it doesn't. It is a fairly minor bug, but can be confusing.

Any bug will be in the mediawiki software we use though, and not something we can do anything about - this will need to be reported upstream to mediawiki.

The bug is in the http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Wikidiff2 "diff engine" module we use.

Please report bug upstream.
