#24526 closed defect (bug) (invalid)

Compare two mode can't be triggered from the URL in the new revisions UI

Description

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.

Yes. This is something MarkJaquith and I have discussed, too. This is the first ticket for it.
