What I'd do is the following: - install XEM (Enterprise Manager) - when you're ready to set a tag/branch, copy the main wiki into a subwiki (using Enterprise Manager it's easy) and give a meaningful name that includes the tag or version in the name - have a page on the main wiki to point to the various tags/versions of the documentation. -Vincent > Regards, > Andrey > > > On Sep 14, 2011, at 10:09 PM, Crowd Covered wrote: >> >>> Hi xwiki people, >>> >>> Is there a possibility to have something like tags or baselines for >> complete >>> wiki or particular space?
