Subject [jira] Commented: (JSPWIKI-435) Support Minor Editing
Date Sat, 15 Nov 2008 09:18:44 GMT


Dirk Frederickx commented on JSPWIKI-435:

Indeed, the term 'minor edit' might be confusing. This term is sometimes referred to as a
'qualification' of a version indicating that is was only a minor edit.  A minor-edit flag
will be shown in the version-history of the page.

However, the suggestion here is to overwrite the last version of the page, when 'minor-editing'
is turned on.  (nothing will be visible in the version-history of the page.

JSPWIki should only allow to turn on (of by default turn on) 'minor-editin'g' when a number
of conditions are true, in order to avoid abuse. (i.e. overwriting stuff without a trail in
the version history of the wiki)

Additional remark:
The change-note of that page-version should be preserved during minor-edit, but the user should
be allowed to make an update to it.

> Minor editing allows to save a page without creating a new version.  This avoids excessive
creating of many page versions with no added value.
> Minor-editing will be allowed (defaulted) when :
> 1) the same authenticated users is editing the page multiple times
> 2) the editing occurs within 30min  (settable through
> A user should be allowed to 'un-check' the minor-editing flag and save the changes as
a new version.
