When you revert to a previous version of a page, the last edited date remains the same. In a way, this is correct, but within an issuetracker this has some unwanted side effects.

Desired behaviour? --betabug, Wed, 14 Feb 2007 01:19:15 -0800 reply

What I got:

Last edited 1 second ago by betabug (i.e. it gives the time of the revert)

So what should the desired behaviour be? Do you want the time of the edit to which we reverted to? Would that behaviour apply to all ZWiki pages (including issues) or would we have to look out for special cases?

everything but the date seems to be handled reasonable --betabug, Wed, 14 Feb 2007 01:22:41 -0800 reply

Name: '#1293 revert only restores content' => '#1293 revert "last edited date" handling'

so I'm changing the subject of this

Within an issue tracker, I use the "last edited" column to monitor for any progress. If I revert a page, I'm basically undoing any progress made, so I want to see the original timestamp. The best example why you would want this is the tracker on I would like to see which issues are old/inactive but a spambot repair doesn't do any good for this purpose.

IMHO a revert should change the last edited timestamp to the value before the unwanted edit.
