Interesting... I was just about to open up a similar OT thread

"Does anyone know of a Rev GUI to act as an RCS for CVS"

In my context I'm interesting in keeping a repository of specification 
documents, task rosters etc.   easily viewable and searchable as .html 
docs on the web site.  Certain team players would have editing 
privileges, and could view them and if they wanted to edit, click a 
button and edit, but other users would be locked out if an edit was in 
progress. The system should have an option to add comments if possible, 
not only to the document, but as a kind of meta data to the document 
itself, which detailed briefly the nature of the revision update.

like "Andre: I just added new criteria for the transcription process."

Adobe has added all this functionality to their CS suite "Version 
Cue"... and, though it's slow and clunky, it works. A rev version for a 
html/web repository would be lightening fast.

I don't know if this what you are doing by it seems to be a related 
area... btw the "token" is sometimes referred to also as a "semaphore 

A Rev widget, standalone editor to interface with the site would be 
equally acceptable (for those having editing privileges) as the html 
docs will be very simply formatted, well within the range of Rev's HTML 
tag set.

I'm sure this has wheel has been rolled before...of course the cmd line 
is there for wizards who can do the RCS thing from the unix cmd line if 
they have root access to the server, but this won't work for 
"secretary" level users, who just know how to type and click. And the 
security issue would never allow for expansion of the number  of people 
with root access, so a GUI is needed to have more team players with 
edit privileges.

But, perhaps you user role here is completely something other than what 
I'm describing.
