Description (last modified by fguillaume) (diff)

the 'edit' action (for sections managers or managers) on published documents create newer revisions only in sections without updating the proxy's revision in the workspace which causes proxies to be out of sync.

the edit action should either be removed or the corresponding document's revision in the workspaces should be bumped by one.

  • Status changed from new to assigned
  • Cc fg@… added

This is by design in the workflow:

  • a Manager should be able to edit a "live" document if needed (urgent change


  • a change to a document in a workspace/section should not impact any other

version of the document in another workspace/section

I'm curious about what we could do better here. Some kind of notification?

The problem is that the document revisions become higher in the sections than in workspaces. Which means the changes done directly on published documents are not accessible to section reviewers. There is no way for a non-manager to synchronize the revision in the workspace with the published revision.

Basically what is missing is the equivalent of a cvs check-out. When the user starts editing a document in the workspaces, there should be a way to increase the revision number if it's lower than the one of the published document.

For instance: "WARNING: the document that you are editing has been modified by the section manager after it was published. The revision that you are working on is outdated. [Get the latest revision]." ?
