Display shortened revision numbers
|Reported by:||Owned by:||Remy Blank|
Version control systems other than subversion might have substantial longer revision identifiers (e.g. Mercurial, Monotone). These revision ids should not always be displayed to the user in their entirety.
To solve this, a method should be added to the vc-api that lets the vc-backend convert a "full" revision id into a "displayed" revision number.
An additional parameter could choose the style ("short", "mid-size", "full", whatever…), depending on the context where the revision id is to be displayed.
(The alternate approach, to modify the backend so that it always hands shortened revision ids to trac, seems very hackish to me.)
