What can this extension do?[edit]

This special page visualizes the article and discussion revisions, for a given article, as nodes on 2 time bars. Arrows between article and discussion nodes represent dependencies between these revisions, based on computed similarity indicators. A table above the time bars provides detailed information on the dependencies identified. There is a selection menu where you can specify the indicators, time range, and granularity for the presented dependencies. In addition, we have implemented a page with general analysis concerning dependencies over many articles.
