The automatic updates of commits into topics breaks things. The %TOPICINFO line remains at whatever rev, it is not incremented even though RCS is updated.

The actual topic text: (% changed to x to prevent the TOPICINFO line from being swallowed)

[gac@foswiki ~]$ head (...path...)/data/Tasks/Item10537.txt
xMETA:TOPICINFO{author="GeorgeClark" comment="reprev" date="1301027726" format="1.1" reprev="1" version="1"}%
To improve tailoring of the InstallationGuide shipped with Foswiki,  split it into two parts.

So the TOPICINFO disagrees with RCS.

compare script fails:;rev2=3 - compare uses the TOPICINFO rev. and gets stuck on rev 1.

Difference: Item10537 (r1 vs. r1)

To improve tailoring of the InstallationGuide? shipped with Foswiki, split it into two parts

rdiff works

Difference: Item10537 (3 vs. 2)
Revision 2

-- GeorgeClark - 29 Mar 2011

Added FoswikiStore component. This is somewhat related to the inconsistent use of TOPICINFO and RCS revision information.

Confirming this, and noting that I'm addressing it in Item11091
