To be able to properly support the action tracker, I need to be able to determine the rev number of a topic at a given date in the past. This seems to me to be a generally useful thing to do - for example, you need to be able to do it for audit purposes, or to diff agaist a given date in the past. So to support this, I propose to add the following function (alrready written & tested) to Store, and thence to Func:


ObjectMethod getRevisionAtTime( $web, $topic, $time ) -> $rev

  • $web - web for topic
  • $topic - topic
  • $time - time (in epoch secs) for the rev

Get the revision number of a topic at a specific time. Returns a single-digit rev number or undef if it couldn't be determined (either because the topic isn't that old, or there was a problem)

after Dakar, this should be added to the mythical topic object.

$topic->getRevisionAtTime($time) -> $rev

There are dozens of things that need to be added to the fabled beast, should it ever be born.

Added GetRevisionTime as per spec above.

actually, should the name be more specific? it is returning a revision id, rather than the revision itself

- maybe it should be getRevisionInfo() -> \@revInfo, but smile

getRevisionIdAtTime / getRevisionNumberAtTime?
