Staying in the loop: structure and dynamics of Wikipedia's breaking news collaborations describes an analysis of the revision graph of Wikipedia users.

The method seems to be very much related to the dynamic social network analysis of Iba et al.[1] What Iba et al. call "sequential collaboration network" Keegan et al. call "article trajectory". Keegan et al. is apparently inspired by Discovering social networks from event logs from 2005.
