Compare two mode can't be triggered from the URL in the new revisions UI
|Reported by:||ethitter||Owned by:|
The revisions comparison UI in version 3.5 and earlier supported URL parameters to set the revisions to be compared by setting left and right query arguments. With the heavily-JS-dependent UI coming in 3.6, there isn't a way to link to specific comparison.
Shouldn't we use pushState to update the URL when comparing two revisions so users can continue to link to a chosen comparison? It can be helpful to share a link to a given comparison when collaborating on changes or auditing where a modification originated from, to name a few scenarios.
