I’m in the process of scheduling a meeting with our friends at MindTouch to talk about revisions they might make to the diff and history system in Deki to better suit our needs. Feel free to dump your thoughts here; I’ll go through them and use your suggestions to help build a list of proposals to make when I talk to them.
Right now, the big things are:
- We need side-by-side diffs instead of inline diffs, both for legibility and to make translation via copy-and-paste easier.
- Instead of showing the entire article when comparing, it would be better to only see the changed areas.
- The recent changes page/RSS feed need links to the diffs.
What do you want to see in article diffs and revision histories?
I’d like to add links to ban users right into the revision history. Saves me time. :)
