Feature Proposal:


HistoryPlugin provides a minimum functionality of what people expect these days. It is very much like the MediaWiki interface, for better or worse.

Description and Documentation





merely update the Foswiki distribution's MANIFEST file and add the following line:

!include ../HistoryPlugin/lib/Foswiki/Plugin/HistoryPlugin

during the development of 1.1, the HistoryPlugin could be further enhanced; those enhancements should be handled in subsequent RequestProposals and task items.

It would be better to bring this functionality into the RDiff code, instead of duplicating things and increasing the codebase we have to maintain.

It also seems to me to be important to analyse the actual benefits of the code and to consider what we can do better (as the core has full access to things)

Same comment as I have on CompareRevisionsAddOn.

As long as I do not see some commitment to start implementing this in core, we should put this extension in 1.1.

We can always remove it again when the feature is in core.

Make them default plugins, I installed them on our system around a week ago and this seems to be standard functionality. There wasn't anything additional I had to install as the stuff for dependencies was already available on my installation.

Please do ship HistoryPlugin as part of the standard distribution.

As an additional note - as the current maintainer of HistoryPlugin I give my permission to change the change policy to FollowReleaseProcess. This is required for all extensions that become default extensions to protect both our users and the original authors.

Sven, again, given the condition and promise that we merge the feature of HistoryPlugin into core in 2.0 - are you OK to lift your concern? That would save the community a vote wink

done, and commited to trunk

presumably Will will be doing some docco work, and adding unit tests.
