The Rollback link doesn't work on deleted posts

Rolling back to older revision on deleted posts get 404 error on POST request, and rollback fails.

I could undelete it and rollback it back, and delete it again as work around.

But just curious is this proper way of how rollback button works?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I'm tempted to tag this [dead-horse-flogging] ;o) In other words, if it's deleted, I don't really see the point of reverting a revision. Could you clarify where you see a need for this? – Piskvor Jun 23 '11 at 15:56
@Piskvor, almost no point to do that, but I just wanted to say that "rollback" button that I able to see on deleted posts does not work. that's all. – YOU Jun 23 '11 at 15:59
That makes sense, thanks for the clarification. – Piskvor Jun 23 '11 at 16:12

Since we can do edits on deleted posts, we should be able to do rollbacks on them, especially since rollbacks count as edits.
