Revision list show only one revision for this question.

But responses list in my profile says there is two with duplicate contents.

That could be a bug in responses list page?

These aren't the droids you're looking for....

It was a non-distinct bug in how we fetch revisions overall, which should have excluded 5 minute edits. This is now the case, only the latest edit/comment from a 5 minute window will be shown (as it already is everywhere else).

    Interesting! Does this imply that you're actually storing all revisions, even when changed within the 5 minute grace period? (That would make implementing Add an indication that a post has been edited in the 5 minutes grace period quite easy...‽)

    @Arjan - Kind of, and only in some cases...a stub is stored, and the way it's aggregated from the database makes it not so simple without a big performance shift. Apr 23, 2011 at 15:12

    Too bad, @Nick ;-) What about only retrieving the number of stubs then? Just like with comments: this revision was edited 2 times?
