The only small thing left is: If you have a rev 8 and delete the ,v file the version is still shown as rev 8 with links to 7,6,5,4,... And when you edit and save you have a rev 2 which is correct but the previous version presents itself as rev 8. The perfect way would be to always show rev 1 if the ,v file is missing and save a rev 1 in the ,v file when rev 2 is created. But I see the problem connected with doing that. Both in implementation and performance (having to check for the ,v file). I think we can live well with the current implementation.
Changed the topic title.
True, but the rev in the file is not kept in synch with the rev on disc, and it would be a PITA to make it do so. Storing the rev twice is a complete and utter PITA.
I agree that we can live with the current impl, at least until someone comes up with a smarter store that doesn't keep rev numbers in meta-data.
If we can live with it for a long time the right priority must be low. So I changed it to that.
This is not going to be fixed, at least not until someone comes up with a smarter store implementation, so I'm discarding it.
