Description florianbruckner 2005-05-27 14:43:37 UTC
Technical documents usually have a revision history, showing the date, a version
number, who made changes and what was changed.

I therefore propose the following extension to Writer.

1.) Extension of the versioning feature to carry more metainformation, i.e
    - a version number (free form text field, carrying for example "Draft A",
"Version 1")
    - a field showing who made changes (not necessarily the person creating the
version, so a free input field with the current editor preselected)
    - a checkbox to note whether the version is public
    - a "short description" to be displayed in the revision history in the document
    - possibly more or even user-defined fields

2.) A new index type showing the version history with the following features
    - Selection wheter all version or only public version shall be shown
    - Selection of fields to be shown
