Item12819: Pass Interwiki links through expandCommonVariables
Current State: Closed
Released In: 2.0.0
Target Release: major
Macros are not expanded within a interwiki link definition.
The case here is specific to Foswiki.org. We need to map svn rev's to git hash references. A new macro plugin / macro is created that will map rev to ref.
returns df46972 which could be used in a github url.
However the interwiki definition:
fails to expand the macro in the rendered link.
Simple solution is to call expandCommonVariables on the link generated by InterwikiPlugin

This fix is still needed, but unfortunately it's not enough to support the migration to Github. Since a single SVN rev can expand into multiple git commits, we need to override the returned url format.
