[protege-discussion] Versioning in Client Server Mode

Kristina, Jonathan,

Currently, there is no support for archive/revert in client-server mode. 
It is not clear what these functions should do in a multi-user setting.

For instance, the archive could take place either on the server or on 
the client. From the implementation point of view, it is easier to make 
it on the server. This would impact the performance of the server, while 
the archive is being done. However, the bigger problem is the revert 
operation. Imagine how unhappy the other online users would be if at 
some point you would revert the ontology to a previous version and all 
their changes would disappear. Revert should probably be controlled by a 
policy that would allow only some privileged users to do the operation.

I've added an enhancement request for supporting the archive/revert in 
multi-user mode. Probably we'll be able to implement the archive on the 
server pretty easily, but the revert will require more work:
