[geeklog-devel] GSoC idea: Versioning

This is another idea that has popped up again and again over the years:
The ability to track changes in a story (in content and who changed it
and when), including the ability to go back to an earlier state.

Instead of building it into stories specifically, could this be
implemented as a plugin? The PLG_itemSaved API function was introduced
with that idea in the back of the mind.

There are some challenges here and I'm not sure they can actually be
solved. Like what exactly do you save as the "diff" and how can you roll
it back? The UI is also an interesting challenge. In any case, this
would probably require a few more API extensions and changes on the
other side (e.g. in stories) to use it.

Just throwing this around for some feedback ...

bye, Dirk
