Feature Proposal: Save further save options for better handling of topics


The "Quitesave" respective the "donīt notify" concept is not well integrated in the TWiki infrastructure. Till example the DBCachePlugin could not make use of it, as "donīt notify" is only available through logfiles and .changes . MichaelDaum has a replacement for WebChanges which is fast and would make things more generic. At least the feature would make bin/changes script and .changes file obsolete.


Make save options like "donīt notify" available as metadata to make use of it within the TWiki-infrastructure

At the moment WebChanges based on search and the changes script based on .changes exists.

Impact and Available Solutions

WhatDoesItAffect: Rendering, Search, Performance, Published API
AffectedExtensions: DBCachePlugin

Note: Patch is attached as http://twiki.org/p/pub/Codev/PersistentSaveOpts/twiki-foo-bar-patch.diff. The patch is against the TWikiAlphaRelease of 15 Feb 2004.


A "normal" save behaves always dominant to "minor" saves (quiet-save and checkpoint-save).


It should be possible to list
  1. recent changes (aka changes-bin); minor changes excluded
  2. detailed changes (aka WebChanges); minor changes included


A possible solution would be, to integrate informations for "minor-edits" into normal TOPICINFO: META:TOPICINFO{author="TWikiContributor" date="1120846368" format="1.1" version="$Rev: 7463 $" minorauthor="$username" minordate="1120846368"}
