RFE: add finer-grained control of revisions to add_revision command
Last modified: 2013-07-04 01:26:07 EDT
Description of problem:
The add_revision command only increments the release number; it would be useful to be able to specify that a revision should increment the major or minor revision number instead. The revnumber switch allows the writer to override this behaviour, but requires the writer to investigate the Revision History to determine what the next value should be.
Most documentation changes are best reflected by an increase in minor revision; this should be the default.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run add_revision on a book in the source language
2. inspect the Revision_History.xml file in the source language
The revision number takes the form x.y-z. The value of z is incremented by add_revision unless overridden by the --revnumber option
Writer should be able to specify next x, y, or z without reviewing the file contents. Increments should default to y.
Doesn't --revnumber cover this?
