Make revisions when using UpdateAttachmentsPlugin


when there is an Attachment available, the UpdateAttachmentsPlugin adds the link to this attachment to the Topic. Is it possible, that the plugin checks, if there is an older version of this file available? If yes, the attachment,v file will be created automatically and the new file will be a new revision.

UpdateAttachmentsPlugin doesn't update the attachments themselves, it synchronizes the topic metadata view of the attachments, with the actual contents of the directory. So the flow is:
  • Some external action places a file in the pub/Web/Topic/... directory.
  • UpdateAttachmentsPlugin rest handler detects that the topic metadata list of attachments is out of sync with the contents of the pub directory, so the topic is updated.

It would be up to the external process that placed the attachment file in pub/Web/Topic/ directory to detect that an older version is there, and to "rcs checkin" the new attachment instead of just writing it to the directory.
