I was looking at the codex links and noted that the page at https://codex.wordpress.org/Installing_WordPress
has been hacked.
It doesn't appear to be editable by a mere mortal.

John Billion noted in Slack...

Wow they broke the history too,

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Page was already redirecting to https://wordpress.org/support/article/how-to-install-wordpress/ a long time ago.

The history is still there, it just got moved when the spammer moved it. Not a hack, the wiki is editable by any logged in user.

User account banned, page content restored.
