Quick overview:

Gets a list of contributions made by a given user, ordered by modification time. This module cannot be used as a generator.

Version notes: Prior to MW 1.14, the start parameter was used to continue. Between 1.14 and 1.22, start was used as a continue for single-user mode; continue was used as a continue for multi-user mode. From 1.23 forwards, continue is the only continue parameter.
