For the benefit of those who were not part of yesterday's team meeting,
or haven't yet read the minutes. I put forward a proposal as per the
subject line of this post.
A copy of my proposal is available from:
The proposal has 5 points together with my rational for the changes.
If there are no reasonable objections, I propose to start updating our
NextCloud instance on Friday, 18th. September.
I'm bringing a new element to the discussion, related to Version control.
Our infra team added a Version Control plugin to NextCloud.
Each file in Nextcloud is version controlled, including our Guides and
Details on the way to use it are in this link:
I think it can be considered in the proposed workflow changes
Hi Olivier, All
Yes we definitely could make use of the versioning system, but there
might be some unforeseen side issues.
Based on my couple of very rudimentary tests, it appears that the names
of the edited/revised and existing files must be 100% identical.
The *content* of the (fictitious) "GS7001-DB.odt" and "GS7001_DB.odt"
files could be identical, but the NextCloud versioning system would
identify them by the small filename difference as totally separate and
unrelated, so no version control would be applied.
Now if I download "GS7001-DB.odt" edit it and upload without changing
the file name the NextCloud versioning system works as expected.
Although NextCloud will challenge me about an existing file with and
identical name, every time I upload.
See the identical versioned and non-versioned test spreadsheets here:
I am happy to work with the version control system, but it might add a
little extra work for those who, like me, have a local naming procedure
for files on their own system.
There is a possibility confusion arising when it is forgotten that
previous and current filenames must be 100% identical.
I would like to hear the views of other contributors before I move any
further forward on the workflow changes.
