revhistory — A history of the revisions to a document.


revhistory ::=


A revhistory is a structure for documenting a history of changes, specifically, a history of changes to the document or section in which it occurs.

DocBook does not mandate an order for revisions: ascending order by date, descending order by date, and orders based on some other criteria are all equally acceptable.

Formatted as a displayed block. A tabular or list presentation is most common.

The order of revisions within a revhistory (e.g., ascending or descending date order) is not mandated by DocBook.
