RE: Re: file by file revision

As a newb here, I wasn't sure if this were viable or not, but couldn't you use a user property to store the file revision number then simple search the database for the file revision number? Or a combination of the file revision number and the filename?

Also Ivan, is this an OpenSource Project you are working on? I may be able to donate some time to help since my boss has been bugging me to write one of these for a couple of months.

Dear Max,

yes, i can imagine that there are many advantage for this philosophy ...
here is what i need:
i would like to use a version control system to store documents, manage
histories, manage versions of docs in a document control system.
subversion is very nice for this, it has an own storage system, handle
permissions, web interface, etc, but small problem of handling version
that means the document version number has to be managed by my
application, but how can i relate my version number to the real revision
number in subversion system?
if for instance a user wants to see the 2. version of the document, but
the last (actual) version is already 7. how i know that which revision i
should get from subversion history?
