Hold on, Alex. What commit are you talking about? I don't see any links to
commits on this bug report. Even if I did, please keep in mind that we have
different skillsets, and I am not a developer and cannot read code or really
understand anything in Gerrit. I'm here as an oversighter, one of the handful
of active oversighters who has worked with both the oversight extension and the
revision-deletion/suppresion extension.  So tell me: how *does* the proposed
script deal with oversighted revisions to now-deleted pages? The way the script
is described here, it appears to be intending to reinstate all revisions, which
logically would mean that it would have to recreate the previously-deleted
pages.  And how would we track whether or not logs need changing? Remember that
revdeletion/suppresion doesn't automatically result in revdel/suppression of
all log entries.
