of course i would like to have a locking mechanism for every versioned
content;-) what about the publish tab? shouldn't it be locked as well
when somebody is editing a document? locking becomes more important in
larger sites and when multiple people have editing rights to the same
Sylvain talked about zc.relationship. could this product be used to
not only store the id and path of an object but also the status/
revision of a document and if it's locked by whom? this would also
allow to add some nice features to the smi. e.g.: imagine logging into
silva and you see a list of objects that are currently in revision
"draft" and where you are the last author. this list would be like
bookmarks and would allow you to jump to your work without the need to
navigate through the smi (which, in my opinion, is still not optimal).
this could be implemented like an rss feed where the user can
configure the filter. please, can i have a "silva code source" which
would allow me to expand the smi itself?
p.s.: infrae should open up a forum (using SilvaForum with openid, of
course) for discussing future enhancements of silva. i have still an
idea or two;-)
