iFixit interface display erroneous diff between revisions

Hello iFixit team,

I found a weird thing on iFixit.

It seems a declined revision is included in the comparison between the modifications that were made to a tutorial.

Here is how to reproduce the problem :

First I go to the iFixit FR interface like shown in the picture below, using the link :

Info : diffs are marked in red on the picture.

Here I noticed modifications were made to the tutorial in english, but I also noticed that this modifications were incorrect as the part name was changed from Hard Drive (correct) to Hdd locked (incorrect).

So I went to iFixit EN interface to check revisions history and found the revision that added this, and I see that the revision is declined like shown in the picture :

Block Image

Info : the revision is indicated by a red arrow in the picture.

Here are the details of the modifications contained in this declined revision :

I think, this declined modifications should not be used in the comparison between the modifications that were made to the original tutorial.

Is that a bug or something ?
