Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (JSPWIKI-110) time machine
Date Sat, 12 Apr 2008 22:39:08 GMT
FWIW, this is likely a feature/requirement of a system I'm planning,
since we'll be doing regular archiving of a wiki to a "heritage"
archive, with the requirement that a snapshot of the wiki for a given
timestamp be retrievable from the archive on demand. So in the next
6-9 months this will be something I'll be building if it's not
already available (though I may build it on top of the XNodeProvider
or whatever results from a cross between the XNodeProvider and priha).
