Suggest that timestamps display on article history in addition to the date. The time stamp displays when comparing revisions but not on the list. 

EX: https://master.support.mozilla.com/en-US/kb/one-more-you/history
+1. The timestamp is on the mockups.
If it's in the mockups, we'll do it. Not a 2.3 blocker, though.

The timestamp is in the low-fi mockups, but the PSD styleguide shows only date. Maybe chowse can clarify.

Unless there's precedence for multiple article changes in a single day, I'd say leave it as the date-- the full timestamp requires too much horizontal space. We can reveal the full timestamp in the title attribute.

If same-day page changes are common, we could split the date and time portions across 2 lines, w/ the time in a smaller font.
Kadir, Michael, or Cheng: How common are same-day edits, like Chowse describes?

I'd say "not very common," but even if they happen sometimes, I'm not sure if the timestamp is relevant _in this list_ as long as the info can be accessed elsewhere, which is already possible.
Let's make sure this is a <time> element with both datetime and title attributes set, in that case. The interior of the <time> element can stay just the date.

Based on comment 6, this can wait.
