Re: Versioning

So, in this case scenario we don't really have to worry about notifying
authors after new version is created. We may give them a message once they
visit their object that "New version was created. In order to view it,
select it from dropdown below". If they like it and want it to be their
default at this point, they may just hit "Save" button.

Well, as I said: it is not for an author to decide what happens to his updated UMO. The UU is to notify all this UMO users it has been updated, period. The users are to decide whether to use the updated UMO, or to keep their current version thereof.
He is my view on how versioning may look on UI(done for course,
topic/explanation, explanation)


Eligible author will be able to view/edit _all_ versions of current object
using dropdowns. By default he will see "_his_ + _latest_" version of
object if he clicks on the object link from "My UMOs" page or "_latest_"
if he comes there from Main Repository/Catalog. Once he updates/saves it
there, it becomes "_his_ + _latest_" and temporarily _latest_ for others.
Same scenario for all dependencies, dependent object may have different
version than parent.
